I'm trying to build jre14 plugin for Firefox - but there's a little(?)
problem: pkgsrc still's trying to fetch the files, which aren't available at
the locations given in Makefile, and which I had to take directly from Sun's
website (there was registering needed).

And so my question: how to tell to pkgsrc "this source package is available
on the hdd already at location /some/path/to/package, don't search the net -
just use it"? Of course, I would still to let pkgsrc fetch the other
packages, when needed.
