Other than the fact that it's not a unified diff <wide grin>, yes, it looks
OK.  (With the caveat that I haven't tested it to work properly, of course.)
A few nits mainly for cleanliness:


! SHLIB_SHFLAGS=		-Wl,-soname -Wl,lib${LIB}.so.${SHLIB_SOVERSION}

-Wl allows multiple arguments separated by ",", so this could simply be:

! SHLIB_SHFLAGS=		-Wl,-soname,lib${LIB}.so.${SHLIB_SOVERSION}


! 	$(CC) -v -Wl,-nostdlib -B${DESTDIR}/usr/lib/ \

Well, you don't want -v when committed, but you probably knew that.


! 	    -Wl,-R${_LIBSODIR} -Wl,-R${LIBDIR}

These need not be -Wl,-R - just

! 	    -R${_LIBSODIR} -R${LIBDIR}

would suffice.  (NetBSD's in-tree gcc, and gcc3 for NetBSD targets, accepts
-R directly.  The "-Wl,-R" hack was invented for use in pkgsrc so that older
compilers--such as the one for a.out--could use it.)
