To support sharing of binary packages better, the "<$ARCH>" symbol used in
pkg/PLIST* `till now is replaced by "${MACHINE_ARCH}", using 
$MACHINE_ARCH (e.g. m68k) instead of $ARCH now (e.g. amiga). 

The old hook for <$ARCH> will still be enabled for a while so you don't 
have to update your pkgsrc immediately after updating your, 
but be sure to do it some time in the not too far future.

Thanks to Johnny Lam <> and Alistair Crooks 
<> for their inputs on this subject! :-)
