I don't have access to an Irix system, or any other system without
'zlib' in the base system, but in this case you probably want to 
introduce a dependency on 'pkgsrc/devel/zlib':

	.if ${OPSYS} == "IRIX"
	.include "../../devel/zlib/"

'fnmatch.h' is in NetBSD's base distribution.  Again, I don't have an
Irix system, so I can't help here.  The configure script in the 'dar'
distribution seems to have a test for 'fnmatch.h'.  If it's failing on
Irix, you should report that problem to the 'dar' developers.
