Much better, I agree. But as an immediate workaround bootstrapping
includes is a solution to compile the userland right now.
And, meaning no offense, in a -current system, finding such issues is
not a disgrace for the developer, it may (Murphy sez : must) happen, so,
the avergae user may find, and imho share workarounds.
And, finally, I think that we users (or developers with no spare time)
are contributing with finding such tricks - bootstrapping make includes
is not that dirty, isn't it ?
