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
(vle%gmx.net@localhost). Alternatively, you can remove it from devel/ and I'll
move it to wip/.
Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
