AOL :o) - right something like that is useful. I think it would improve
the quality of pkgsrc alot and it might save ppl from running (bulk)
builds with broken packages.
Maybe including it into the bootstrap script, some of the tests are
already included there like:
if [ -f /etc/debian_version ]; then
This is about the packages which needs to be built from the pkgsrc tree.
A little bit later we already check for basic tools:
check_prog groupsprog groups
check_prog lnprog ln
check_prog lsprog ls
check_prog rmdirprog rmdir
so this might be easily extended. Even I don't know at which part. The
main tools which are used by pkgsrc but are not part of the debian base
system are file, m4 - these can be built out of pkgsrc itself in the
bootstrap proccess. Some basic tools like "make" are not part of the
Debian base, however they are needed for the bootstrap.
