The bootstrap script could do the heuristic and record the result
(modular or native) in the mk.conf that it creates. This should avoid
surprises like the one you mentioned.


The first essential in chemistry is that you should perform practical
work and conduct experiments, for he who performs not practical work
nor makes experiments will never attain the least degree of mastery.
