If it was already removed, the only way to fix this is to forcibly
remove all remaining bootstrapped packages (the ones that bootstrap
normally installs) and then rerun the bootstrap script to get things up
to date.

A more graceful way to upgrade bootstrap-mk-files is to use
"make USE_DESTDIR=full package" and then upgrade by using the resulting
binary package.
