It would be nice to have a script added to bootstrap-pkgsrc that quickly
checked for needed tools and libraries. And gives a friendly message
telling the user what is needed.
I can write a little script to do this.
For example, these are used ib pkgsrc installations:
dc (I already packaged it with math/bc)
file (I already package it too)
It can also check for curses, ncurses, etc and give suggestions.
