Fails on Interix with:

CC="gcc -D_ALL_SOURCE" MAKEFLAGS= MAKESYSPATH=`pwd`/mk:mk:/usr/pkg/share/mk:/usr/share/mk:/usr/local/share/mk:/opt/share/mk ./bmake.boot -f Makefile

c89: Cannot find compiler 'CL.EXE' in PATH
c89: Either set the C89_COMPILER environment variable or add the

This is because bmake is picking up Interix's /usr/share/mk/, and
should not be doing that at all.

Previously, bootstrap made bmake use the pkgsrc-supplied .mk files only via
a -m option; now it is using some MAKESYSPATH variable that appears not to
work.  I recommend using -m, as before, to force overriding the entire
search path during bootstrap -- and its argument must not contain any
non-pkgsrc-managed paths at all.
