 Could you elaborate on this?  The package is required by many others,
 most notably gnome.  Leaving it broken on the latest release of NetBSD
 for weeks was not acceptable.  Since the problem also existed in
 pkgsrc-2007Q3, I wanted a solution that didn't change infrastructure
 so that it could be easily pulled up.
 I would be happy to see this change reverted when a better fix is
 committed.  If anyone plans to do so, be my guest.
