When cdlabelgen-1.5.0 is compiled from pkgsrc a patch named patch-ac
is applied that shifts all graphics to be printed one inch higher than
usual. This causes the top of the page to be truncated on letter sized

Although this patch causes no harm with A4 sized paper, it is useless
even there since the images being printed out are meant to be cut from
the paper. There is no point in centering the graphics on the page.

	cd /usr/pkgsrc/graphics/cdlabelgen
	make install
	ls -1 /bin > /tmp/foo
	cdlabelgen -c "title of cd" -s "subtitle"  -f /tmp/foo -o /tmp/
	gv /tmp/
	# Note that the top of the graphic has been lopped off.

	Remove cdlabelgen/patches/patch-ac and adjust distinfo.
