 No, it was not only on arm.  I experienced it on amd64-current and
 i386-8.0_BETA using pkgsrc-2017Q1.
 The problem is due to a 'bash'-ism in the configure script which slipped
 through earlier revisions of NetBSD's 'sh'.  After the corrections and
 tightening by kre, NetBSD's 'sh' properly choked on it.
 In pkgsrc-HEAD "graphics/ilmbase" has been changed to explicitly use
 'bash' to run its "./configure" scripts.  If you update at least that
 package to HEAD it should configure and build properly.  It does for me.
 There is a pending pull-up to pkgsrc-2017Q1 which includes these
 changes, but it hasn't been committed.  For myself, I just updated
 that package to HEAD.
