No, the bug is actually in lintpkgsrc, which has its own makefile
parser.  I'm loath to change compat_netbsd/Makefile.common just to
satisfy lintpkgsrc or pkglint (actually, I'm not even sure how to
rewrite that line so that lintpkgsrc or pkglint can understand it).
I did it once for the suse32_* packages already, but I wasn't happy
about doing it then, either.

I think this PR should be assigned to the pkglint maintainers.
