Ok so it is really bmake that is failing (not /usr/bin/make), and it is
failing because of MAKESYSPATH. With MAKESYSPATH unset, or set to
"../../files-mk", things work okay.
The question is why it is being set incorrectly. If anyone knows off hand,
pointers are appreciated. Atm I'm just not sure how it's *supposed* to be
done. Neither MKSRC nor DEFAULT_MAKESYSPATH seem to be set to something that
makes sense in the general case (/usr/share/mk etc). Is there a reason NOT to
just have it hard-coded to "../../files-mk" in the case of running the set
suit? Given that any absolute system paths are not likely to be correct on
anything but NetBSD.
Ok, off to sleep...
