That section starts at line 19:

/* Machine Architecture */
# define QT_ARCH_I386
# define QT_ARCH_I386

I have PREFIX defined as /common/local.  /usr/local is a symlink to
/common/local: the machine is set up to be bootable from any of the 4
slices, but I only build ports on the slice that is running the
"earliest" version of FreeBSD, and have but one "/usr/local".  This may

/usr/ports is (also) a symlink to /common/ports.

I do not have LOCALBASE defined in /etc/make.conf.

As I type, the machine is rebuilding firefox-18.0.1,1; the only
remaining ports (for the libffi update) are:

* ImageMagick-
* graphviz-2.30.0
* qt4-linguist-4.8.2
* qt4-assistant-4.8.2
* qt4-webkit-4.8.2
* qt4-designer-4.8.2

I'll be commuting home shortly, so I will be off-Net during that time.
