The bootstrap packages should be fully self-contained.  If you compare
the stage0-bootstrap targets for NetBSD and SmartOS, the NetBSD
section simply uses whatever happens to live in /usr/pkg at runtime,
whereas the SmartOS bootstraps always copy exactly what was used at
build time, ensuring the correct libraries are always used.
