re: make-bsd, pmake, and /usr/share/mk, oh my

   So... pmake claims to be "BSD 4.4 make", and in fact appears to be a not-
   unreasonable copy of the NetBSD make sources. Is there any particular
   reason that the make-bsd and netbsd-mk packages in the chroot can't be
   replaced by the Debian-standard pmake package, if it gets updated (it's
   a few revisions behind, it looks like, but that's a wishlist bug for the
   author and easy to patch against for us).

i don't know how you're building anything, but it's not exactly uncommon
for a modern netbsd make to be required to build it.  that's why the first
thing our shiny new src/build.sh does it build a copy of src/usr.bin/make
without using make :-)
