Do you by chance have openldap23-client installed?   Yesterday I 
promised to rebuild with the default make.conf CFLAGS but in the interim 
gnome2 was installed which comes with openldap23-client apparently, and 
now the mere presence of openldap is forcing a fatal build error

-I /usr/local/include is what's doing it, it continues the build when 
manually stripping /usr/local/include from this directory's build 
options but it breaks later on as well.

A very few google hits on this error, none of which lead to fix or
