 It's true that mk-files is not used in pkgsrc but I personally use it
 for testing my own software.  For testing purposes
   'bmake -m /usr/pkg/share/sjg-mk'
 works just perfectly.  So, I'd vote for keeping it in devel/.  If you
 don't want to maintain it, please apply suggested patch (unfortunately
 I have no commit rights) and assign MAINTAINER to me
 ( Alternatively, you can remove it from devel/ and I'll
 move it to wip/.
 Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
