Snagged. Incidentally, I love the fact that there's a sup collection that
gives us updated packages. Neat. :)

Um... This is about the coolest thing I've seen, so... Yeah... I think it
should go in! It would be cool if there were docs (or pointers thereto) in
/usr/pkgsrc, but that's the only thing missing, IMHO.

A question: Is editing whatever/files/defaults by hand and then running
`make pre-configure` the proper way to configure a package?
