Having downloaded the latest pkgsrc.tar.gz and set about installing
some packages gtk croaks with an error:

root(monitor)gtk$ pwd
root(monitor)gtk$ make
make: "/usr/pkgsrc/x11/gtk/../../mk/buildlink3/" line
1: Malformed conditional (empty(_BLNK_DEPENDS:Mx11-links) &&
make: "/usr/pkgsrc/x11/gtk/../../mk/" line 1369: if-less endif
make: "/usr/pkgsrc/x11/gtk/../../mk/" line 1369: Need an
make: Fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/x11/gtk

The file is version 1.7 commited 5th March.

Any clues how to workaround this?
