After a recent update of the ports tree make became unable to build lang/expect:

Code:
freebsd64# cd /usr/ports/lang/expect
freebsd64# make install
Syntax error: redirection unexpected
*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/expect.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/expect.
The same error on FreeBSD 6.2 with make from 6.4:

Code:
[root@freebsd62 /usr/ports/devel/glib20]# make install
Syntax error: redirection unexpected
*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/glib20.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/glib20.

This forum does not support End-of-Life FreeBSD releases. The ports tree shouldn't even work on FreeBSD 6 any longer. Upgrade to a supported release.

Then you're out of luck, basically. We cannot invest time in releases that are unsupported [sic] and unsafe to run.

I am unable to do upgrade (because of agreements between other people which I should obey). This is the reason, why I start to use 6.2 at all in the year 2012.
You can pull the sources and compile it by hand if that is the case. If that works consider it a stepping stone to migrating your server to a supported release. For now your simply creating a band-aid on an aging system.

Why 8.1? That's going End-Of-Life in July of this year. Why not upgrade to 8.3?
