It's certainly not intended that Tor require gnu make.  It might help
track down the problem if you can figure out which Tor release (or
ideally, which commit!) introduced the new, broken behavior.  Even if
it turns out that there _is_ a bug in netbsd's side, it'd still be
worthwhile IMO to see if we can work around it somehow.
