nawk, bmake and pdksh are required for bulding packages, not for
handling binaries. So, your first try to define category3 failed.

If I cannot describe thing by one short sentence, this probably
means that this thing is badly designed.

Optional? - yes. Helper? - yes. Infrustructure? - I think no.
Infrustructure packages should be in 1).

I don't understand why pkg_tarup used by 'make replace' is not
in bootstrap. The same for checkperms run from inside pkgsrc.

And I don't like things like BULK_PREREQ.
