I think i found the problem. On FreeBSD, we use amd, which works
with by symlink hacks. pkgsrc resolves these symlinks (why?!).
The symlinks point to /.amd_mnt. Note the underscore. I see
things like this in transform.sed:
So, i think it ends up turning /.amd_mnt into /.amd/mnt, gets
horribly confused, and strips out all the oh-so-important -I
While this path mangling looks pretty nasty to me, i think this
would be solved at least for me by not resolving the symlinks.
I'll continue digging and will try to solve this myself if i have
to, but all these levels of indirection are making my head spin
:). Hopefully someone else more experienced with buildlink3 can
knock out a solution.
