OK, that explains.
Although it might make more sense to make it anti-shoot-foot though. ;)
I.e. do nothing if called directly from the port's directory. (Although I
can also understand the reasoning for allowing it.)
So if another pkg needs zlib it will use the builtin.mk in devel/zlib to
determine if the pkg needs to be built or not?
In the first case it will generate a pkg, in the latter it will not generate
a pseudo-pkg for this. Correct?
