The following Makefiles needed to be modified to add 
-I${.CURDIR}/../../../lib/libelf and/or -I${.CURDIR}/../../../sys.

/usr/release8/src/cddl/usr.bin/sgsmsg/Makefile lib/libelf
/usr/release8/src/cddl/lib/libctf/Makefile lib/libelf sys
/usr/release8/src/cddl/usr.bin/ctfconvert/Makefile lib/libelf sys
/usr/release8/src/cddl/usr.bin/ctfmerge/Makefile sys


CFLAGS+=        -I${.CURDIR}/../../../sys/cddl/compat/opensolaris \
                -I${.CURDIR}/../../../cddl/compat/opensolaris/include \
                -I${.CURDIR}/../../../lib/libelf \
                -I${.CURDIR}/../../../sys \
                -I${OPENSOLARIS_USR_DISTDIR} \
                -I${OPENSOLARIS_SYS_DISTDIR} \
                -I${OPENSOLARIS_USR_DISTDIR}/head \
                -I${OPENSOLARIS_USR_DISTDIR}/tools/ctf/common \
                -I${OPENSOLARIS_USR_DISTDIR}/tools/ctf/cvt \

"make make" is also needed for 6.x -> 8.x so that should be
added to UPDATING.

The build will then run until stopping in libexec/atrun with
/usr/release8/usr/release8/src/tmp/usr/lib/ undefined reference to `__stack_chk_fail_local'
