Please "cd ../.." before running "make help". It will be much faster. It also doesn't execute some arbitrary commands based which package you are in.

Oops, I forgot that this only works in my local tree, and I didn't commit it yet. ;)

Indeed... I had a check to see if "./mk/" exists and then run the command, but that didn't work. ;-)

I'll leave this to you when you've committed your changes (after I've added this... busy busy here)
