:) I understand the problem very well. bmake analyses Makefiles very
slowly _probably_ because it opens the same files huge amount of times.

pkg_micro_src_summary in turn solves _one_ particular problem, it
efficiently fetches variables values from package's Makefile.  From
original posting it was not clear what author needed/suggested, to fetch
variables or to optimize bmake and/or pkgsrc infrustructure.
