I'm not sure that pkg_comp should really need to perform the check if
pkgsrc is able to install pkg_install as a dependency. While it might
paper over some cracks, once you get to the point of being able to trust
pkgsrc's handling, pkg_comp should be able to simply do one less thing.
Having said that, an upfront test in pkgsrc wouldn't necessarily be a
bad thing. An easy way to achieve that would be to conditionalise the
behaviour of treating pkg_install as a bootstrap dependency, such that
it is possible to set a variable to achieve the old behaviour.
Then, pkg_comp could set the variable when checking the pkg_install
versions, and be able to build pkg_install upfront until the bootstrap
dependency mechanism is more robust.
