I've already removed the LIBC settings from - but how that
relates to pkgsrc I don't know.

Also the unit-tests pass fine in bmake itself (on all the systems I have
access to), if bootstrap/bmake is now using bmake/boot-strap the
unit-tests should be run as part of that.

test results don't look good ;-)

Mark, what happens on OS X if you just grab bmake and boot-strap it by
itself?  Ie.  

cd /tmp
tar zxf bmake-20051105.tar.gz
tar zxf mk-20051104.tar.gz
