You mean like it doesn't reinstall bmake

Yes, correct. It is "bmake" that depends on "bootstrap-mk-files" and not
the other way around. The correct sequence command should therefore read:

sudo zsh
mkdir /safetmp
cp -Rp /usr/pkg/bin/make /usr/pkg/share/mk /safetmp
pkg_delete -ff bootstrap-mk-files
pkg_delete -ff bmake
cd /usr/pkgsrc/devel/bmake
/safetmp/bmake -m /safetmp install
rm -rf /safetmp

Stumbled across this discussion while trying to update bmake on OSF/1 and these instructions needed a little adjusting to work. My sequence of commands;

mkdir /safetmp
cp -Rp /usr/pkg/bin/make /usr/pkg/share/mk /safetmp
(failed, make not found)
cp -Rp /usr/pkg/bin/bmake /usr/pkg/share/mk /safetmp
pkg_delete -ff bootstrap-mk-files
pkg_delete -ff bmake
/safetmp/bmake -m /safetmp install
(failed, not found)
/safetmp/bmake -m /safetmp/mk install
(worked, but no sign of installing bootstrap-mk-files)
ls /usr/pkg/share/mk
cd ../../pkgtools/bootstrap-mk-files/
bmake install
(failed, no, obviously)
bmake -m /safetmp/mk install
(worked, thankfully)

Wouldn't have got anywhere w/o the template though, so thanks for that. Hopefully this version will save someone the hassle of deleting the /safetmp/mk files before the new bootstrap-mk-files is installed.
