 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...
