Not working for me.

I have (for my mk/platform/

-SETENV?=       /usr/bin/env
+SETENV?=       /usr/bin/env -i

When running "make" in editors/conglomerate, it gets down to:

===> Checking for vulnerabilities in libbonobo-2.8.1
Variable PATH is recursive.

And sometimes it has same error "Variable PATH is recursive." in lang/gcc:

work.rainier -> /usr/pkg/tmp/pkgsrc/devel/libbonobo/work.rainier
===> Extracting for libbonobo-2.8.1
===> Required installed package ORBit2>=2.12.0: ORBit2-2.12.0nb1 found

Variable PATH is recursive.

make: stopped in /usr/local/pkgsrc/lang/gcc
*** Error code 2

I have gcc:

rainier:/usr/pkgsrc/editors/conglomerate$ gcc --version
rainier:/usr/pkgsrc/editors/conglomerate$ type gcc
gcc is hashed (/usr/bin/gcc)
rainier:/usr/pkgsrc/editors/conglomerate$ uname -r

But when I run "make SETENV=env" it all appears to work.

make SETENV=env

I haven't noticed problem (with "SETENV=env -i") under Linux .... yet.
