mk-files provides a number of sys.mk candidates, and install-mk installs
one if it can. It also links own.mk to bsd.own.mk if its a non-BSD system.
The boot-strap script that comes with resent bmake's uses mk/install-mk
to do the dirty work.
I think bootstrap-pkgsrc has sys.mk's for some platforms that
mk-files does not - that should be fixed (by me ;-)
If there's anything else you think is missing - let me know.
As to pmake link - if you have a patch to do so - pass it on, or feel
free to commit it.
