I did finally get this to build - I don't know why it worked, but I'm
not complaining. I ran portsclean -CDD, rebooted, portsnap update, and
tried again: must have been a patch somewhere in the build; so thank you
I do still want a clarification, I'm still getting a handle on makefiles
and building large projects:
What does the gmake[n] mean? Is it parallel builds? I'm not even sure
what to google for...
