This is going to be an issue for any of the external tools that use automake
and have been generated with automake 1.13b or newer (released 2013-05-31).
See upstream commit:

The automake upstream head has unreleased reversion:

Given it's not practical to locally fix and regenerate all the upstream
external/**/dist/configure for this issue, NetBSD 4.0 is waaay EOL
(as is NetBSD 7), thoreau is now running 9.99 (thanks for providing access),
do we need to keep this ticket open?

Ps: the upstream commit/thread does point to this posix bug
which has a comment that NetBSD 4.0 doesn't work with rm -f without an argument:
Look for "0002407" on that page.
