Historically, make(1) was provided in base principally to support NIS
(see /var/yp/Makefile.yp).  The system Makefiles were not included
because it was assumed that they would only work with the system
toolchain (or at least that anyone doing development would install the
system toolchain).  Note that, which has non-NetBSD-build-system
related initialization, is included in base.

Can bsd.*.mk be used without comp installed?  I can see having a
third-party toolchain, but you'd still install comp to get /usr/include,

If bsd.*.mk don't assume comp-* is installed, though, this change makes
a lot of sense.
