What is the correct way to override MASTER_SITES in /etc/mk.conf?
I have a local ftp server with all of pkgsrc/distfiles, and want
my various machines to try it first before looking out on the net.
I have tried the following in /etc/mk.conf, but I get an error
that says "Variable MASTER_SITES is recursive" in /usr/src when 
building.  It seems to work fine for /usr/pkgsrc though.
	ftp://frakir/pub/NetBSD/packages/distfiles/${DIST_SUBDIR}/ ${MASTER_SITES}

Is this correct?  What I want is to look locally first, not completely
override the distribution sites.
