I'm going to need some pointers here.

I was able to reproduce the above reported error that generated this ticket against xcb on a Catalina system, but I cannot find any place that specifies the string "Makefiles.dir". I grepped everywhere under /opt/local/var/macports.

After running "xmkmf", macports should not be calling "make Makefiles.dir", but just simply "make". When I do that, the build successfully runs.

Can anyone tell me what's causing macports to invoke "make Makefiles.dir"? Is it a new bug in macports dealing with "use_xmkmf yes" builds? Is it some new setting I have to add to my Portfile?
