I checked make.conf already, since that is usually the cause when I have
such problems. I didn't know about src.conf, I'll have a look at its
manpage (so, since I don't have one, that can't be the cause of my

I was finally able to do a buildworld by doing it from single user mode.
My guess is that the root of the problem was with either the shell I was
using or some environment variables. Going to single user mode was just
the safest way to remove all those possible effects, since I'm not quite
sure how to do it in another way. But I agree, single user mode itself
is not likely to help other than that.
