So what's in /etc/make.conf?
eactly all of what "/etc/mk.conf" has.

/etc/mk.conf is for pkgsrc.  /etc/make.conf is for the system build.
thanks for this. i will take it as a gift :-)  DragonFlyBSD
Documentation/Guide/FAQs do not contain this distinction.
Then I'll give you another gift, whenever you wonder something about DF 
try to see if there's a man-page, most of the system is quite 
well-documented (much thanks to Sascha Wildner).

For example the make.conf man-page is quite informative (it says among 
other thing that there is no option WANT_GCC41, gcc41 will be compiled 
by default and you'll have to set NO_GCC if you don't want it).
