Changes to the NetBSD Packages Collection in April 2000

[My apologies for the lateness of this mail - agc]

Another fairly busy month in pkgsrc-land.

Notable additions to the packages collection include:  adzap,
corewars, cscope, html2ps, some Japanese fonts, popa3d, pptp, qt-2.1,
racoon, smtpd, xcal, and xengine.

Notable updates to packages in the packages collection include: 
ac3dec, apache, ap-ssl, balsa, bozohttpd, communicator and navigator,
ddd, delegate, ethereal, fetchmail, gif2png, global, gnapster, gnome,
gnumeric, html2text, icon, imap-uw, linux-locale, lsof, lynx-current,
Mesa, moscow_ml, mtv, nmap, nmh, octave, pcre, postfix, pth, R, rman,
ruby, ted, thttpd, tiff, unzip, w3m, windowmaker, xglobe and zebra.

Other changes include:  fetchmail now supports ssl-encrypted IMAP and
POP3 connections, much work has been done on the ghostscript packages,
and postfix now supports Perl-compatible regular expressions (PCRE)
and Variable Envelope Return Paths (VERP).

The Package of the Month award goes to Matt Green's small, simple
and efficient bozohttpd. The Quirk of the Month award will rollover
to next month.
