I just tried to build an interesting-looking package in a
fresh pkgsrc on my March 2nd-current system and I got the

$ make
make: "../../mk/buildlink3/../../mk/buildlink3/" line 1: Malformed conditional (empty(_BLNK_DEPENDS:Mx11-links) && !empty(USE_BUILTIN.x11-links:M[nN][oO]))
make: "../../mk/../../mk/" line 1369: if-less endif
make: "../../mk/../../mk/" line 1369: Need an operator
make: Fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/audio/rhythmbox

Am I just playing with something that's being worked on, or is something
out of date, or is this as puzzling to you folks as it is to me?

BTW, I've been spoiled by years of pkgsrc working so well that I rarely
consider building something if it's not in pkgsrc.  Thanks...
