It seems like having the ${LOCALBASE}/bin as part of the default path
should not be required. That is why it is set in MAKE_ENV and
CONFIGURE_ENV for example.

But I was building graphics/mng and it failed first with missing autom4te
and then when I fixed that with:

-       ${ACLOCAL};
+       ${SETENV} AUTOM4TE=${LOCALBASE}/bin/autom4te ${ACLOCAL};        \

I then received:
sh: autoconf: not found

The fix was to define in environment:

 ${SETENV} AUTOCONF=${AUTOCONF} ${AUTOMAKE} -a --foreign -i;     \

But instead of just fixing this graphics/mng, it seems like the perl
scripts themselves should be fixed.

(Also for mng: under Solaris ln -sf doesn't create link if exists.)
