Subject: buildutils are shipped with unusable paths for kfreebsd
Date: Mon, 02 May 2011 19:16:29 -0400
Package: freebsd-buildutils
Version: 8.1-1
Severity: normal

The FreeBSD -buildutils are shipped with upstream defaults for common BSD commands.
As we use a GNU user land paths are slighty different, thus using a (BSD style)
Makefile  including paths from /usr/share/Mk/ will fail since some 
helper utilities are not found where expected, e.g.:

UNAME?=         /usr/bin/uname

should be /bin/uname,

GMAKE?=         gmake

maybe "make" (as we use GNU make anyway) and so on.

Could you provide a full list? (or even better, a patch)

Btw, "gmake" is not a problem because of:
