Yep. You can give it:
to have it make copies of the system's sys.mk and bsd.* - for that purpose.
You can use =ln too to make symlinks but that would probably be a bad
idea in this case.
Note that we cannot install a sys.mk if we don't have one to install.
We could do a generic sys.mk for that purpose though.
>(What are the problems with this?)
Not much - but when using a copy of the system's sys.mk it is unwise
to use say own.mk as bsd.own.mk, its better to use all of the system's
bsd.*.mk as a set.
So, the result of install-mk will still vary from one OS to another.
