Is there any easy way to do this without attempting to build an entire
distribution.  Ideally, I'd like to use MacOS X to build the INSTALL notes
only so I can make sure everything's formatted right before committing.

I've got bmake installed (from the pkgsrc install tools), and it barfs,
looking in the wrong places for stuff.

(gizmobook) /Volumes/netbsd/home/mw/netbsd/src/distrib/notes/macppc> bmake
bmake: "/etc/mk.conf" line 367: Malformed conditional (${OPSYS} == "SunOS")
bmake: "/etc/mk.conf" line 367: Need an operator
line 7: Could not find /distrib/common/Makefile.distrib
bmake: "/usr/pkg/share/mk/" line 13: if-less endif
bmake: "/usr/pkg/share/mk/" line 13: Need an operator
bmake: Fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

bmake: stopped in /Volumes/netbsd/home/mw/netbsd/src/distrib/notes/macppc
