Since Minix now uses NetBSD's make natively, I am wondering if this is
necessary? Would it be better to have a need_bsd_make var in bootstrap
(default yes) so we can have the native make used when possible?

IIRC, GNU ar is not part of the Minix base install. Should building it from
pkgsrc be part of the bootstrapping process? Or is bootstrapping the toolchain
a subsequent step to bootstrapping pkgsrc itself? I forget...
