What built for doesn't for and
Gets message "[...] \
target    '[...]tarballs/pdfium-3794.tar.bz2', \
needed by '[...]libreoffice-'."

Builds with '--disable-pdfium' specified.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run standard CRUX 3.5 (GNU/Linux ports-based build-from-source distro)
   install/update package management tools for distro-canonical libreoffice
   port (contrib repo).

Actual Results:
[build XSL] CustomTarget/officecfg/registry/officecfg/ucb/Store.hxx
make[1]: *** No rule to make target '/usr/ports/work/libreoffice/src/tarballs/pdfium-3794.tar.bz2', needed by '/usr/ports/work/libreoffice/src/libreoffice-'.  Stop.
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make: *** [Makefile:274: build] Error 2

Expected Results:
The install/update script completes normally as it did for (Note patch
for Bug 128189 is needed and installed for and as well, since
qmake-qt5 is in /usr/bin which is the last directory in PATH--an empty directory
could be added to PATH to circumvent the need for the 128189 patch).

Always on bug reporter's platform
Never on the platforn of the canonical port's maintainer
Configure tracing on both platforms has revealed few differences;
 * inclusion of
   on the port maintainer's platform,
 * different PATH definitions and the like, and
 * application of the 128189 patch on the bug reporter's platform (the
   maintainer's PATH has not usr/bin as the last directory)

Note this problem is still encountered when the bug reporter's platform has not
installed the configure script tracing modifications described in the 129189 bug
report.  As the issue does not seem to be related to configure, the config.log
file is probably adequate for troubleshooting.

 You'd better rearrange your beliefs, then.
 Because you certainly can't rearrange the universe."
