We can't do it that way because it is important that software that
uses but is not part of the NetBSD source tree be able to
turn on and off the D flag from ar usage on its own. That is also the
reason that the default is not set to "yes" -- other people use the
.mk file.

I have also re-read the discussion and I have come to the conclusion
that this was well explained in the course of the discussion and that
no one contradicted it. In addition, I stated precisely what I was
going to do, waited, and no one said anything more, leading me to
believe that the consensus was not in the direction you indicate.

As indicated, I see nothing wrong with a MKDETERMINISTIC that flips
the MKARZERO flag as well as the other flags that control
deterministic builds, but we need this particular feature to have a
knob on its own.
