Thanks for finding the root cause.

I guess adding this (and similarly for lua) would be good.  (I think I
stumbled over this and didn't convert some packages from USE_CMAKE to
cmake/ because they failed, and that might be the reason.)

On the other hand, I also think it'd be nice to get rid of this
special handling, because it will making building using cmake outside
of pkgsrc harder if pkgsrc does magic that doesn't happen outside.

So I'm torn :)
