Nope, I've 1.153 installed and it didn't solve it here.

/*      $NetBSD: parse.c,v 1.153 2009/01/04 20:17:36 dsl Exp $  */

I've upgraded the system only one hour ago... and yes, I did "make clean" etc 
prior to attempting to rebuild.

I worked around the problem after removal of a "\ " that was part of the 
PKG_USER variable

PKG_USERS=              ${AVAHI_USER}:${AVAHI_GROUP}::Avahi\ user:/nonexistent

which was changed to

PKG_USERS=              ${AVAHI_USER}:${AVAHI_GROUP}::Avahi:/nonexistent

I haven't had a look at the parser, its 2:00am and just finishing compilation 
of VLC, the original task on hand.
