Is anyone still relying on being able to generate their own double-clickable Mac pkgsrc bootstrap kits? If so, can you tell us a bit about why this capability is important to you?

Barring objections, a week from today I intend to remove bootstrap/ and the corresponding "--binary-macpkg" code from bootstrap/bootstrap.

Reminder: a week from 7 August is tomorrow :-)

This has been done.

I'm thinking about creating Mac pkgs/dmgs to make pkgsrc more accessible in bioinformatics, but I don't see any reason for this kind of functionality to be in the bootstrap script.  I think a separate tool used after bootstrap would be more appropriate. Thanks for cleaning up.
