A couple of minor nits:

mtr is be built with a gtk+ interface for displaying results, if 
present, but you've omitted the from DEPENDS.

Not sure what you intend, so either (i) explicitly configure 
--without-gtk, or (ii) add the needed gtk devel package(s) to DEPENDS.

After I build this, 'mtr -v' reports 'mtr UNKNOWN'

Otherwise, looks good.
