I'm not sure I understand -- I thought circular dependencies are
quite easy to find.

Also, as Michal Pasternak wrote, bzip2 seems to compile fine
with our native make and the one from bootstrap-pkgsrc.

I don't think it's a good idea to limit ourselves because of
possible problems that could appear in the future, if it is
not very probable that they will really appear, and that doesn't
seem to be case here.
