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?


I've already exempted it from the pkgsrc GCC requirement in
auto-pkgsrc-setup per previous discussion:

cat << EOM >> $mk_conf
.if \


    empty(PKGPATH:Mpkgtools/digest) && \\
    empty(PKGPATH:Mpkgtools/mktools) && \\
    empty(PKGPATH:Mpkgtools/pkg_install) && \\



.endif  # GCC_REQD
