verifypc has the following sequence:

    lines=$(cat ${log} | sort | uniq | tr ' ' '¬')
    for l in ${lines}; do
        pcname=$(echo ${l} | cut -d '¬' -f 1)
        pcop=$(echo ${l} | cut -d '¬' -f 2)
        pcver=$(echo ${l} | cut -d '¬' -f 3)

this is rejected by solaris tr in UTF-8 locales because '¬' 
(or '\254' here) is an invalid UTF-8 sequence (which would be '\302\254')
set to any UTF-8 locale and invoke verifypc after minimally a bmake configure in a pkgsrc package directory
Either the chosen delimiter '¬' should be changed to be something less than '\200' or perhaps the locale could simply be forced to C or POSIX
