 I'm sorry we don't get around to many PRs on a timely fashion.
 We're working on improving that though.
 I cut out the rest of your mail.
 If you want to get a patch applied to NetBSD itself, you are usually
 asked to send it against HEAD, not against any of the release
 branches.  So I guess that jlam expected you would send a patch
 against the HEAD.  Additionally, if you would take a look at the
 CVS logs for mk/install/install, you'd see that quite major changes
 have been committed in January and February, so major that I didn't
 find a single line of context for most parts (i.e. all but the
 trivial part I committed) of the updated patch you supplied.  These
 are _not_ simple merge conflicts.
 Are you willing to supply an updated patch that applies against
 -current pkgsrc sources? Though at this point probably the 2005q1
 branch is ok too, since it has just been cut and no big changes
 have been committed to mk/ yet.
