	Well, I made net/eggdrop package. The one already existed (eggdrop 1.3.x),
	but was marked as broken. I rewrited the package to work with eggdrop 1.6.2.
	This *really* needs testing if anyone is interested in commiting this.
	Known bug is that eggdrop will find config file only if *absolute* pathname
	is specified ("eggdrop /tmp/bot" will work, but "eggdrop bot" won't, even if i'm in /tmp)
	[well, the bug exists in packaged eggdrop, at least]
	It also has problems with pidfile. (I run it as normal user, and it want's
	to write pidfile to ${PREFIX}/share/eggdrop) <= scripts/, help/, language/
	dirs are installed there.

	The package is rather unusable at the moment.
