Re: Correct way to update bmake and bootstrap-mk-files?

Whenever the bmake and bootstrap-mk-files packages need updating, the
automated process fails because both of those packages are needed to
do the update ==> chicken-and-egg problem.
I deal with that problem like this:
cp -Rp /usr/pkg/bin/make /usr/pkg/share/mk /safetmp
pkg_delete -ff bootstrap-mk-files
pkg_delete -ff bmake
/safetmp/bmake -m /safetmp install
rm -rf /safetmp
Please beware that the above can go horribly wrong. If it does all
you know it will stop instantaneously and every molecule in your body
explode at the speed of light(*).
