There are components of bsd.*.mk that shouldn't require comp-*. I solved those two PRs in the manner I did because: 1. The mk files aren't that large. 2. Parts of bsd.*.mk shouldn't require comp-* to be functional. 3. In the 10 years since the first PR was opened no-one had bothered to rewrite the /var/yp Makefiles to ensure that they had no dependencies on /usr/share/mk/*. 4. This change ended up being the least effort and least impact. cheers, Luke.
