I don't think that your changes should be made to defs.*.mk -- these
files provide some reasonable defaults, that the user can overwrite as
they see fit. Assuming that users on Linux do get their tools from
bootstrap-pkgsrc, it should be sufficient if the bootstrap-process tries
to determine the correct location and sets some variables in
/etc/mk.conf or even just informs the user of the problem.
