To answer these questions, look at the Makefile of pkgin which shows
libfetch's bl3, and then look at the in libfetch, and note
that it doesn't exist.   So there appears to be no support for using
system libfetch in packages.

Is that right?  Perhaps, perhaps not, but keep in mind that this part of
the code is tricky because of the desire to avoid circular dependencies
in the bootstrap/installation process.
