Because those mk-files are potentially way out of date for netbsd.

Best bet would be to update bmake in pkgsrc to a later version that
doesn't have this issue.

The switch from the original pkgsrc bootstrap bmake to importing the
source into devel/bmake/files was to avoid the hassles caused by pkgsrc
having a bmake that was several years out of date.

The version in devel/bmake is currently 20051105, that's a year old.
