That's really too bad, because in my view it puts go into the not-really-portable-just-almost bin, but with the imminent release of -8 pkgsrc is about to officially not really care about 6. Already -6 is very troubled in builds because of how many programs require C++11 or even C++14, although that is probably mostly fixable. Do you know what the real underlying issue is, and how hard it is to fix? "Bad system call" makes it look like something that was really built for a later version is being run somehow.
