You probably mean BOOTSTRAP_DEPENDS (Originally this was my mistype)?

It contains per-package list.  I said about FULL, i.e., global list
for all packages. It is needed for bulk build software. Full
dependancy graph is required and it is impractical to run 'make
show-var VARNAME=BOOTSTRAP_DEPENDS' for every package to obtain it.
It is also not good to hardcode two static values: digest and

That is digest is required for almost all pkgsrc packages.
I still don't see reasons why "Optional Infrastructure" exist.

BOOTSTRAP_DEPENDS should be documented somewhere or (better)
completely removed (or at least keeping it empty by default,
allowing users to add wget etc.).

I didn't say about adding pkg_tarup to BOOTSTRAP_DEPENDS.
I said about making pkg_tarup a part of pkgsrc bootstrap.
The same for digest and checkperms.
