CHROOT bondage# pwd
CHROOT bondage# make show-var VARNAME=GREP
CHROOT bondage# make show-var VARNAME=FGREP

but I used to get something for FGREP.

With the new tools framework, whats the right thing to do to get some
tools for something like README.html generation?

Right now what happens is something like:

cd pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkglint
FGREP=`make show-var VARNAME=FGREP`

and there is a for loop which extracts a small handful of tools which
are used by the README.html scripts.  

The bulk build framework uses some similar things.

Is there a new way this should be done?  Should there be some target
which says "give me some tools for bulk type operations"?
