It would be nice if someone worked on bmake to make conversion. just for the convenience sakes. bmake is annoying, particularly if you use NetBSD in a bunch of places.

i created this patch[1] to solve it.

This patch disables make compatibility mode, so some things WILL
break. bmake unit tests is an example of this. So to install the new
bmake you'll need to cp /usr/pkgsrc/devel/bmake/work/DragonFly/bmake
to /usr/pkg/bin/bmake

I've tried it compiling mule-ucs package and seems that bmake with
the patch did his job fine, but it may break things, so use with

Also it would be great if someone who knows bmake internals could
find a better and definitive solution.
