Don't know what the problem is, but this section *should* look like:

make[4]: Entering directory `/usr/src/xc/lib/GL/GL'
install -c -m 0644 libGL.a /usr/X11R6/lib
ranlib  /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.a
install -c -m 0755 libGL.so.1.2 /usr/X11R6/lib
+ rm -f /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1
+ ln -s libGL.so.1.2 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1
+ rm -f /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so
+ ln -s libGL.so.1.2 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so
rm -f /usr/lib/libGL.so

ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 || true

Try going to "/usr/src/xc/lib/GL/GL" and running "ranlib  
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.a" and see what types of error you get.
libGL.a should have been made in the make World portion, so you might 
want to check theWorld.log for errors too.
