May be. But distbb allows to implement features not implemented in
pkgsrc in an easy way ;) Building stages and building options
can be set per package now. Also user can create
for implementing things absent in pkgsrc.

For obvious reasons everything in distbb is implemented outside pkgsrc
sources and I don't think mk/bulk and mk/pbulk are good things ;-)
IMHO pkgsrc base functionality should be separated from bulk builds tools.
