	${MAKE} index will create an INDEX file with all packages from pkgsrc,
	with information about dependencies, path, etc. But still there are 
	known problems:

		o The INDEX file is overwritten when "make index" or 
		  "make search key" runs again.
		o If the INDEX file has not been completed totally, and the 
		  db creation process is stopped when it's running, the work 
		  will be done from scratch again.
	cd pkgsrc && make index
	make search key=foo
	Please, fix me!
