It's true that mk-files is not used in pkgsrc but I personally use it
for testing my own software.  For testing purposes

  'bmake -m /usr/pkg/share/sjg-mk'

works just perfectly.  So, I'd vote for keeping it in devel/.  If you
don't want to maintain it, please apply suggested patch (unfortunately
I have no commit rights) and assign MAINTAINER to me
( Alternatively, you can remove it from devel/ and I'll
move it to wip/.

Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
