	My source tree is in /s/src, instead of /usr/src. I've
	in my mk.conf to get things work properly, but sysutils/aperture
	does not build with this setup.

	If I link /s/src to /usr/src, the build does not break, and it
	effectively uses the /s/src directory. Although, there is some step
	during the build that tries to use /usr/src.

	I've been investigating and found the problem. The $S variable is
	defined in the top When this file is read, mk.conf
	has not been readed yet (see, so BSDSRCDIR takes the
	default value /usr/src.

	Just move your src tree to somewhere else, set BSDSRCDIR in your
	mk.conf accordingly, remove /usr/src (if you have any link) and
	then try to build aperture. It will fail in `depend ===> module'.
	This fixes the problem for me (adding these two lines, we pass
	the real value of BSDSRCDIR to make's environment, and is used
	without needing to read any file):
