 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.
