My rototill of bootstrap is mostly done except for a few unfinished
items. The highlights are:
* The nawk package has been added to the bootstrap process as it's such
a fundamental tool within pkgsrc/mk.
* The various *.mk files have been moved into the bootstrap-mk-files
package. Modifications to those files should mean that the version
for that package should increase.
* The current bootstrap will now install the bootstrap software and also
register it afterwards in the package database. There are only a few
files left which are not registered, but the only affected platforms
are AIX, P-UX, IRIX, and UnixWare. For all other platforms, all files
are now registered as belonging to some package.
The unfinished items are:
* Create pkgtools packages to own the remaining unregistered files.
I'll be AFK for the weekend, but please file bug reports if anything is
amiss. I tested bootstrap repeatedly on my Mac OS X Powerbook.
