At least you have the excuse that you didn't know about it.  I blew it off
for a couple of weeks because I was busy with other stuff.

Actually, if you look at the makefile, you will see that it tries
to work on asdf-install, it just doesn't actually do much.  I
somehow missed the cvs add command to add the patch to insert the
@GTAR@ string in the target file.  The distinfo file did have the
new patch checksum though...

I did it that way because I haven't made too many packages before,
I had 3 or 4 files that needed that kind of treatment (the others
needing @PREFIX@) and I had examples of the way I did it that I
knew would work.  (Well, would have worked if I had done the patch
file right...)

The only examples I saw of SUBST only patched a single file.  Does
this scale to multiple files with multiple different substitutions?
I assume so, but I thought it better to commit something that I
understood, rather than something I thought might work and I got
lucky with in a few simple tests.

Please try it again...
