Probably a good idea. 

However, I have one comment.  How does this interact with selecting a pkgsrc compiler?  Since these need compiling and are not part of the bootstrap (to my knowledge), will that create a dependency loop between mktools and a pkgsrc compiler?  Or should mktools be added to the bootstrap if not already?
