	Prince of Songkla University
System: NetBSD 5.1 NetBSD 5.1 (JADE-1.12-20101117) #5: Wed Nov 17 05:30:55 ICT 2010 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	The (package, not pkgsrc) Makefiles for sysutils/boxbackup-client
	and sysutils/boxbackup use a make feature (-C) not found in
	NetBSD 5 (or earlier) versions of make.

	Why anyone would ever do
		make -C docs htmlguide/man-html/bbackupd.html
	instead of
		cd docs && make htmlguide/man-html/bbackupd.html

	which this package does, I don't want to attempt to contemplate.
	It (along with the -C option to make) is just plain stupid, but
	that's what it does...

	Use a NetBSD 5.0 or NetBSD 4.0 (or anything earlier) system to
	attempt to build sysutils/boxbackup-client (or ...-server)

	I use pkg_comp with NetBSD 5.0 (and/or NetBSD 4.0) sets installed
	and libkver to properly (mostly) simulate the correct execution

	(The NetBSD 5 uses X11_TYPE=native, NetBSD 4 uses X1_TYPE=modular,
	bot use USE_DESTDIR=no .. none of that is relevant to this PR).

	In that environment expect to see ...

	Apply the patch below.   Note this patch assumes that someone
	actually takes the patch that's in PR 42704 (since Jan 2010)
	and applies it...  Without that, this patch won't help.
	Adding patches/patch-* files to each package to remove the
	uses of make -C would also fix the problem.  Using gmake
	would probably work as well (but I haven't tested either of
	those methods, this one worked fine for me, I have the patch
	from PR 42704 applied, and have had since Jan 2010...)

	Note this patch applies in pkgsrc/sysutils as it patches the
	Makefiles for both boxbackup-client and boxbackup-server.
