There's a reasonable chance that would work OK.

However, if the problem you're having isn't with building packages,
but just fetching the distfiles, my old patch might might not help, it
usually would not apply until too late.   Also, if the problem is not
really make, but ftp (or libfetch if that was in use in NetBSD 5), and
attempting to fetch from a https:// URL, then the usual workaround is (was)
to set FETCH_USING=wget (or curl, your preference)

I just ended up moving /usr/bin/make away and symlinking bmake from pkgsrc, it seems to build everything just fine. Now if I could just get spamassassin working again without crapping out on INET6 errors ...

But it's building stuff, so that's good!
