(This is essentially GENERIC)

The openoffice-1.1 port build fails early (just after completing the contained build of mozilla). When building with WITHOUT_MOZILLA, it fails almost immediately, ending with this line:

Configure completed
You may now run /backups/ports-work/usr/ports/editors/openoffice-1.1/work/OOo_1.1.3_src/bootstrap in /backups/ports-work/usr/ports/editors/openoffice-1.1/work/OOo_1.1.3_src
===>  Building for openoffice-1.1.3_1
dmake:  makefile.mk:  line 251:  Error -- Include file target.mk, not found
*** Error code 255

This is the case when building the port manually or via portupgrade.
Sure enough, the top-level dmake makefile.mk refers to a "target.mk" that doesn't exist; and isn't on dmake's include path, for some reason.

This build error has persisted for several months now. There's nothing particularly unusual about this system; it's most perplexing :-( I've removed and re-updated the ports directory, checked the various tarballs and everything else seems ok.
cd /usr/ports/editors/openoffice-1.1 && make
