Actually I haven't been able to buildworld for quite a while. Since 1.2 is 
released, I figured it would be nice to upgrade. So I cvsupped and tried 
again, and hit the same wall:

Am I missing something here?

The problem is that your libc does not contain that function.
It was added March 17.  And the change that I made to arch.c
assumed that strtoumax() is in libc.
Go into /usr/src/usr.bin/make and edit arch.c, and change
strtoumax() to strtoull().  After a build world, installworld
libc will contain the proper function.  And you can undo the
change, or just run cvsup again.
If you have problems doing this send me mail and I will try
and provide more detailed instructions.
