I had a sneaking suspicion what this was, and I just untarred an
apla distfile and confirmed it.

The problem is not in the pkgsrc Makefiles themselves, but further in,
in the third party Makefiles which themselves use BSD make .include
files as part of their build process.

These Makefiles have no clue that they're running as part of a pkgsrc
build, and as such, if pkgsrc is located inside /usr/src, end up
catching all the tools framework.

I don't have a -current setup to test on, but would a simple
MAKE_ENV+="BSD_PKG_MK=" (or something like that) in, thus
causing the inner makes' include of mk.conf to also see that it's
inside a pkgsrc build, fix this problem?
