So if I'm reading this right:

- DragonFly comes with the bootstrap kit already built, and an /etc/mk.conf.

- Building the bootstrap kit places creates /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf.

- That file will override /etc/mk.conf automatically and silently.

So either DragonFly users have to never build the bootstrap kit, or all
mentions of mk.conf should specify /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf.  Neither
selection is optimal.

Would it be better if a DragonFly system started out with a
/usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf and not the overrideable /etc/mk.conf?
