Hi, this is by design. Makefiles have completely different syntax than shell
files. It's only an unfortunate illusion that sysrc could be used for anything
other than shell files.

I agree that it would be nice to have one tool that can edit all configuration
files on FreeBSD. I myself learnt the hard way that sysrc is not suitable for
loader.conf and sysctl.conf.
