/usr/ccs/bin/make on Solaris can't handle Makefiles with empty lines, as 
e.g. created from imake in pkgsrc/mk/buildlink3/imake-check. This results
in funny errors like this on Solaris 9/x86:

 	rfhpc8317% make clean
===>	make: Fatal error in reader: standard input, line 3: Unexpected end of line seen
 	===> Cleaning for xcursor-1.1.2
 	rfhpc8317% pwd

For pkgsrc/mk/buildlink3/imake-check, a solution I see is to apply the 
patch below, which eliminates any empty lines in the Makefile created with 
imake. Please commit if you find the patch appropriate.

I hit this whole problem first building firefox on Solaris, which raised 
he above warning a few times, one of them in the x11/Xrender package. 
There seem to be more issues lurking there, as neither the Xrender that 
comes with the OpenWindows here nor the OpenWindows version itself is 
recognized. I'll dig a bit more into this.
