   |  I have observed this same failure (same package) on i386-8.0_BETA and
   |  on amd64-8.99.1 (although it may not have picked up the very latest
   |  changes as Kamil reports success).
 It needs bash to configure, the script contains ...
         if test ${#osx_arch_array[@]} -gt 1 ; then
 which is never going to work with /bn/sh.   Previous versions of /bin/sh
 would have just let that slide by, and done almost anything, but almost
 certainly not what the author intended.
 On NetBSD it most likely does not matter, as we're not OSx and so I'd assume
 that code is never actually executed. but on other systems it does.
 I'll leave it to whoever maintains the package to decide whether to simply
 make it use bash, or to patch this line into oblivion on systems that aren't
