Add makefs to the list of bootstrap tools

Summary

Having this as part of the bootstrap tools is useful to build disk images
to boot in QEMU (especially when building on a Linux/macOS host where
mkimg is not available). We have been bootstrapping makefs+mkimg in
CheriBSD for a long time (using LOCAL_XTOOL_DIRS) but I believe this
is also useful upstream.

Depends on D27602

can we not just leave the dependency in place, if we don't actually need ${_bt}-lib/netbsd it won't matter?

Looks OK to me, tiny concern is whether _libnetbsd= lib/libmd lib/libnetbsd could become out of sync (exists in two places)

Yeah I don't like that either but I'm not sure if there's an easy way to avoid it.

Add comment to keep the two assignments synchronized
