This is what should be done, if we can stomach it.
I don't think there's any need to bite it off all at once though; a
good start would be to allow a builtin.mk to define a list of files to
buildlink. At the moment all this needs to include for any builtin
package is the pkg-config file, but we could add other material in the
future, piece by piece.
This approach also helps move towards a world where builtin handling
and native X11 handling use the same mechanisms, which is I think a
(But I don't know how much work it takes under the covers to be able
to do just the first step like this.)
