 well, i wouldn't be opposed to doing something like this:
     -PKGNAME=		${DISTNAME:S/_/-/}
 if that would work properly and have the desired effect (and little to
 no side-effects), but be forewarned -- if you use the -E/-I options of
 lintpkgsrc, this won't show up as out of date quite so readily.
