I see your point, but if one does a build with some mk.conf, and gets binaries, and later installs them, I don't think we generally have rule that mk.conf must contain all the settings. pkgsrc should be treating the base system as something that's installed, not something we build. So I agree with dholland that there should be some autoconf-like probing. A harder question is if changing any MK setting on the base system should require the equivalent of rebootstrapping. I think it would be much better if it didn't.
