I think the problem is that the files in lib/libedit include histedit.h
with "" instead of <>.  This works for NetBSD because they have
histedit.h in the same directory.  -I. should be dropped from CFLAGS
probably too.  I once noticed a problem that #include <term.h> picks up
the local term.h instead of the one in [..]/tmp/usr/include.
