I've been getting a lot of Email recently from FreeBSD users who are
trying to use this port on systems which lack the -C capability of
make(1) (i.e. systems before FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE). 4.9-RELEASE added a
proper and working -C flag for make(1), which is what this port relies on.
This was addressed in PR bin/50981 (and subsequently some others).
Below patch adds a sanity check to ensure that people are using a version
of FreeBSD that's at least a little more up-to-date. Folks can upgrade
make(1) by itself if necessary, but generally speaking, one should update
to 4.10 anyways.
Fix: Apply below patch to ports/www/suphp/Makefile.
How-To-Repeat: Run "make" on a system which lacks make -C.
Committed, thanks! What a pity that there's no workaround, though.
