All packages depending on pkgtools/xpkgwedge fails in bulk builds
(NetBSD 1.6.2/i386 and NetBSD 2.0.2/i386) because of a circular
dependency between pkgtools/xpkgwedge and pkgtools/x11-links.

I have not been able to reproduce this outside of bulk builds,
but it can easily be seen by starting a bulk build with e.g.
in the mk/bulk/build.conf.

I have searched through CVS to find which change that introduced
this failure, and the culprit is the July 15 commit:
  Log Message:
  Drop distinction between PKGSRC_USE_TOOLS and USE_TOOLS by making
  PKGSRC_USE_TOOLS go away.  There is now only a single USE_TOOLS variable
  that specifies all of the tools we need to build/run the package.
