I am not familiar with the details of bootstrap packages, but it would
be neat if the bootstrap package didn't have to attempt to be
complete, so that one could use it for bootstrapping but also pull in
the real package if you actually needed it.  Then bootstrap-installed
packages could simply have no man pages, since they'd be solely for
pkgsrc use.
