Please try the following:
It is important that if you update pkgsrc, you do a _complete_ update.
Some changes in individual packages depend on changes that have been
done some minutes before in other directories. The reason for "make
clean" is that you start from a well-defined point.
If that all does not help, make sure that it's not your local
modifications that introduce the bug.
If you still have problems, run "make show-var VARNAME=PATCH". It should
be non-empty but is probably empty in your case.
