I just got a response from the pmk(1) author about this and have rolled 
1.2.2 to fix building problems for people with pmk 0.9.0.  There are 
*zero* functional differences between 1.2.1 and 1.2.2 so don't feel 
compelled to upgrade if you don't want to (not that I'd imagine many 
did in 12hrs).  -sc
