  | configure: error: cannot run /bin/sh ./config.sub
  | *** Error code 1

Try running

	/bin/sh config.sub sun4

and see what happens.   When run from configure stdout and stderr are
redirected, so no error messages appear.

It should just print something like


and do nothing else, but in your case it appears to be failing for
some reason.   Perhaps /bin/sh is not a good enough shell for the
script - you mighht need to set SHELL to /bin/ksh (or some other
sh - perhaps /usr/xpg4/sh or wherever it is).

Certainly the version of gcc is irrelevant for this, it is simply a shell 
script failing in some way.

If it prints nothing at all, and simply exits with a non-zero status, then
add tthe -x option to show how far it gets ...

	/bin/sh -x config.sub sun4

(you need to be in the pkgsrc/pkgtools/libnbcompat/files ditrectory to
find config.sub for all of this.)
