You don't have -I/usr/ucbinclude in your CPPFLAGS. If you don't have
them, you can have problems like readdir() function stripping off
first 2 characters of every file. I spent half a day today debugging
that. You need to either use -I/usr/ucbinclude and -L/usr/ucblib, or
none. Also, as a side note - if you're specifying -L/usr/ucblib, it's
a good idea to specify also -R/usr/ucblib which will make the binary
search /usr/ucblib for libraries during runtime. Otherwise you can get
an error with a shared library not found.

So it's not that. I'd suggest setting variable DEBUG_PACKAGING in your
main Makefile and editing gar/gar.pkg.mk around line 228 - you could
add something like "echo PATH: $$PATH" to see what's going on in
