Changes to NetBSD packages collection in June 1998.


We have added and updated a fair number of the packages in the pkgsrc
collection this month:  notable additions are ddd, nntpcache, vnc,
spice, catdoc, mysql, jdk, gated, and XF86Setup.  In addition, we have
added a file to consolidate all the logic for inclusion
of /etc/mk.conf and environment variable setting, added support for
conflicting packages (so that installation of one package will not
overwrite one with which it shares files), simplified and brought up
to date our use of Motif and Lesstif libraries and packages, added
support for sane "make -k" builds, added automatic manual page
handling so that package maintainers no longer have to specify manual
pages in package Makefiles (this information is retrieved from the
package's PLIST), and modifications to update a package's README.html
(when doing a "make readme") only when necessary.

There is also a tech-pkg mailing list, for those interested in the
packages collection, and matters pertaining to packages in general.
To subscribe, "echo subscribe tech-pkg|mail" at
your favourite shell prompt.
