Could you guys please make 'bmake help' actually print out something useful? Like a summary of commonly used commands? What it does now is really not very useful at all unless you are already a pkgsrc expert.

   package option commands, etc).

Yeah, a good point, and one I agree with completely - it's hardly
"help" if you need extensive background information to know what
to type.

I'll include on this reply - the guys who did the
"bmake help" all read that list.  tech-pkg people - what do you think?
