For the future, maybe we can work on getting it so the bootstrap is not
I heard someone was considering working on merging in support needed from
DragonFly into bmake or visa versa.
And the ftp(1) is already tnftp (I don't know how up-to-date).
And digest is simple to include to DragonFly: as itself, or as a wrapper
around openssl or sha1 and md5.
I haven't looked to see how far pax is diverged or is different. Maybe
DragonFly's pax is good enough. (On an unrelated note, NetBSD's pax has an
awesome feature where it can use a mtree(8) `specfile' specification when
building an archive.)
As for libnbcompat, I assume DragonFly is close enough to exclude that
too. (Maybe I'll try to build pkg_install just natively on DragonFly
As for mtree: it is not needed for pkgsrc. In fact, I use NO_MTREE on some
systems. (Anyways, DragonFly's mtree is used already.)
And DragonFly's sed is good enough and is already used.
