	It is not possible to create a binary package of pkg_install.
	It would be really nice to have this so upgrading pkg_install
	doesn't request downloading pkgsrc, but could be done with 
	a "pkg_add -u".
	(cd /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install && make package)
	pkg_tarup pkg_install
	Tweak something about how deletion of pkg_install is forbidden.
	Not sure what.
