These all look like inproper configuration due to not
using the ports collection. But as Michael said, they're
already compiled for you. Why make work?

This is because you have a stty command in your .profile, .cshrc, .login,
.kshrc, .bash* or whatever shell you're using. Do a:

if [ "$PS1" ]
then
	stty...
fi

in sh,ksh,bash or a

if ( $?prompt ) then
	stty ...
endif

in csh
