It is likely that fairly few people use this.

Someone -- perhaps you -- is going to have to dig in to the code, with a
knowledge of make and shell programming.   I suggest tha you first learn
sh(1) programming if you have not already (which is out of scope for
netbsd lists), and the read the bootstrap script and run it with -x so
you can see what's going on.   A hint is that this sort of error can be
caused by a variable that is unexpectedly undefined.   A toy example is

$(CC) $(LIBS) ...

and if CC is empty and LIBS starts with -lbcrypt, you get the above
rather than "error: CC is empty".

I don't use Windows, so I won't be trying to figure out and fix this.
