And some people are the opposite. However, for loadable (as in dlopen(3))
plugins, suchs Tcl modules the static libraries are useless at best.

Why can't we have some way to explicitly list what is and what is not

= src/share/mk is for /usr/src.  If /usr/ports can use the bits, that is
= nice.  If not ports/Mk/bsd.FOO.mk should be created and used.

By this logic, we don't need to install the bsd.*.mk files at all... I,
however, disagree. I think they are a great development tool, and have
served pretty good so far -- until the very recent and unfortunately
incompatible modifications.

Note, that they are not even called freebsd.*.mk -- to me, the names
implies they are (more or less) consistens among all of the BSDs :-)
