I change it to:
OBJECTTYPE=386                  # target system object type (eg, 386, arm, mips, power, s800, s>
#OBJTYPE=$objtype # seems wrong
OBJTYPE=$OBJECTTYPE

This is because you are not on a plan9 host (where objtype is set in the environment).

Then I propose:
#OBJTYPE=
OBJTYPE=${OBJTYPE:-objtype} # use OBJTYPE if defined, else use objtype (defined in Plan9) weither it is defined or not

Wait, does Plan9 shell does support this kind of substitution?

rc is the Plan9 shell, and it is so much different than BASH that it seems justified to have mkmake for BASH like shell, and mkmakePlan9 for Plan9.

rc is as powerful as bash.  and in some places it is more powerful.  please study it.  experiment.  do not hurry.  inferno is simple and easy to assemble.  just take your time for the first time.
