Seems to be completely normal

	% cd /usr/ports/Mk
	% ls

Yes, there is some work around. :-) Maybe you can pull the file
needed from some other location on your system:

	% locate

As far as I know, FreeBSD keeps its .mk files in /usr/share/mk/,
evem for tjhe ports system.

	% ls
	bsd.README           version_gen.awk

If they aren't there (maybe due to a defective install / upgrade procedure),
you can get them from the source tree.

	# cd /usr/src/share/mk
	# make install
