Linux rp4 5.10.0-0.bpo.8-arm64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.46-4~bpo10+1 (2021-08-07) aarch64 GNU/Linux
devel/libinotify is BSD specific and should not be build on other platforms as it results in the following errors:

ERROR: This package is not available for these platforms: SunOS-*-* Linux-*-*.
ERROR: This package has set PKG_SKIP_REASON:
ERROR: libinotify-0.0.20180201 is not available for Linux-5.10.0-aarch64
*** Error code 1

bmake[8]: stopped in /opt/pkgsrc-2021Q3/devel/libinotify
*** Error code 1

bmake[7]: stopped in /opt/pkgsrc-2021Q3/devel/kcoreaddons
*** Error code 1


Fix the following lines in devel/kcoreaddons/Makefile

.if ${OPSYS} != "SunOS"
.include "../../devel/libinotify/"

either add Linux to the if check, or substitute libinotify with Linux specific package.
