Hmm, interesting. You should examine the makefile to see if it has been mangled
in some way, such as getting linewrapped or DOS-style newlines.
You might also examine the makefile to see if it's intended to be run through
some sort of macro substitution or special build environment. I'm not entirely
familiar with NetBSD's pkgsrc system.
