There are only a handful of such packages in pkgsrc, and we can't
standardize what variables and targets such a Makefile.inc would
provide because each package requires different things. Rather than
pretend all of these files are alike, we shouldn't try to force some
common name on them.

I'm looking into upgrading perl to 5.6.1, and this is one of the ideas
I'm currently pursuing.
