The first step I would suggest is to*
root# mv /etc/make.conf /etc/make.backup
and retry the build. If it still gives the syntax error at csh build,
root# rm -r /usr/src/contrib && cvsup -g -L1 /etc/cvsupfile
because cvsup (afik, ianal, iaanaaoavss) only checks the file header
/* $Header: /src/pub/tcsh/sh.h,v 3.133 2005/03/25 18:46:41 kim Exp $ */
if the rest of the file has some form of corruption within, cvsup won't
know that, and will fail to refetch it, so you remove the appearantly
offending file or files and (hopefully) it build okay.
*Note that I believe buildworld and such default to -O if no /etc/make.conf
exists. Again, I could be very mistaken. Greviously so.
