Sorry, Brendon, you'll see my response twice.

I personally don't see an easy way to provide nm and ldd through pkgsrc
because these tools are system-specific.  This kind of tools should be
installed on Linux (in my case) side just like compiler, linker etc.

Unfortunately pkgsrc guide doesn't specify explicitly what is
"the base system" (minimum requirements) for normal pkgsrc use.
Common sense is not a good friend here.

Is it possible for your package to not depend on these tools.
