Sorry, I now remember I was told this before.
The pkgsrc version should be clearly identified for pkgsrc only. The
package should be renamed from bootstrap-mk-files to pkgsrc-mk-files and
it could install to /usr/pkg/share/pkgsrc-mk/ and the pkgsrc/mk/
infrastructure should use /usr/pkg/share/pkgsrc-mk.
Or pkgsrc/mk should be tested using the latest maintained mk-20100102
and that should be the only package (go ahead and name it "mk") and
bootstrap can install it if needed.
