Changes to the Packages Collection in February 1999
We made an addition to the top-level pkgsrc Makefile, so that by
specifying various *_SPECIFIC_PKGS definitions in /etc/mk.conf, only
specific packages will be used for the SUBDIR target. pkg_delete has
now had a '-r' argument added to it - this deletes any pre-requisite
(DEPENDS) packages. And thanks go to Rene Hexel for making gtk+-1.0
and gtk+-1.1 co-exist.
Notable additions to the packages collection include: communicator
and navigator, more cross-compilation environments, delegate, nessus,
netname and trn.
Notable updates to packages include: amanda (split into client and
server parts, with a meta-package to get them both), bash, clisp,
ethereal, fetchmail, imap-uw, jdk, kde (thanks, Matthias), lsof (NOTE
THE SECURITY ADVISORY ABOUT THIS PACKAGE), lyx, mutt, openldap, samba,
windowmaker, and xosview.

Changes to the Packages Collection itself
Added specific package handling to the top-level Makefile, allowing
the specification of individual packages by using the
SITE_SPECIFIC_PKGS, HOST_SPECIFIC_PKGS, GROUP_SPECIFIC_PKGS,
and USER_SPECIFIC_PKGS when SPECIFIC_PKGS is defined.
Added `recursive' delete to pkg_delete to remove packages
that require the package being deleted [chopps 1999-02-26]
