 Well, the stock 2008Q4 went further after changing a line
 setting PATH in /etc/profile (making it use export PATH="$PATH:foo"
 instead of export PATH='foo', although 300+ packages built fine that
 way in 2008Q4, and even cdrtools when I last built it on an older
 pkgsrc), so it appears to be a particuliarity of that package's build
 system.  The PATH set there included pretty much all paths on the
 system where user-invoked binaries may be found:
 And there were no other gmake or make other than /usr/pkg/bin/gmake
 and /usr/bin/make.  I assume that the build scripts add elements to
 PATH and assume them to remain for children /bin/sh invokations.  The
 fact that it requires a custom Gmake script as part of the build is
 also odd, this because it expects a make global variable to also
 propagate to children, which gmake doesn't (and smake apparently does)
 the wrapper script basically is:
 export MAKEPROG
 exec gmake "$@"
 In any case, the stock 2008Q4 cdrtools now built fine this time, so my
 apologies for the trouble. :)
