Did you get this problem with the bootstrap? (I had fixed that problem for 

Or did you get that problem when trying to figure out the "mk-files" 

The bmake's boot-strap looks for mk* directories and then the error you 
see above is from the bmake's configure script. You shouldn't get that 
error if mk* is not seen. (That is why I named it "files-mk".)

The problems I had are various, such as using X11BASE= (overrides) on 
DragonFly. Ignoring MAKECONF, etc.
