I'm assuming that you did installworld/installkernel/reboot before
attempting to build wip/powerdns-recursor.
After a bit of searching, I added the wip/ bits to my pkgsrc installation
and have found that powerdns-recursor has compile warnings/errors/ICE on
DFly that are totally unrelated to the *context functions.
I'm curious to know what patches/tweaks you are using in your environment to
get to the point where you see *context-related failures.
