   |  On my environment (pkgsrc-current, pkg_install-20061103, NetBSD 3.1):
   |  % pkg_info -Q PKGPATH png-1.2.15.tgz

 Oh - Thanks.   I had an older version of pkg_install installed (a year
 older ...) - usually when that one is too old it insists on upgrading
 itself, and it hadn't, so ...
 That, and that the -Q PKGPATH stuff worked for installed packages, led
 me to assume that the PKGPATH data just wasn't in the binary packages,
 rather tahn just an old version of pkg_info being unable to extract it.
 I have upgraded pkg_install, and -Q PKGPATH is working for me now (and
 it seems to be OK for all by collection of binary packages), so this PR
 can just evaporate.   Now I just need to update my scripts to use it.
 Thanks all.
