"lintpkgsrc -i" does its scan_pkgsrc_makefiles and 
parse_makefile_pkgsrc for every package's Makefile. I don't think this is
needed -- and is too slow. It should just get the info from
the Makefiles for only the installed packages. On my 400Mhz machine,
it took over 2 minutes.

time lintpkgsrc -i
Sorry I didn't make a patch.
It would be minor, except it doesn't know what category it is in
(because it doesn't appear that pkg_info can output the category name also).
