Hi, Roland!

Very nice additions!  Thanks!

A few comments:

1. In the “Strict SUBST blocks” section, it talks about future improvements and development effort involving modifying mk/  The guide doesn’t really feel like the right place for that to me; maybe better would be in your own notes or a pkgsrc/NetBSD wiki page.  Also, in this section, I was expecting info on what variable I need to set in mk.conf to enable the strict SUBST block checks.

3. s/no-op\./no-op:/

Thanks again for your excellent work on pkgsrc and pkglint!
