this may be a bug. I'll try and find some time to take a look.
I'm not sure if it's a bug or not, but the behavior of the bulk build
scripts can be recovered by including the following in /etc/mk.conf:
This variable is set by the bulk build scripts prior to running make.
The effect is to trigger a conditional that installs all the required
binary packages. Without this, it appears that no BULK_PREREQ
packages are installed (I think I was wrong when I said earlier that
digest was installed).
Two things to consider:
- should BULK_PREREQ packages be installed whenever the bulk-package
target is invoked, not just when USE_BULK_CACHE is defined?
- should Packages.txt document this variable?
