NetBSD marvin 4.0_RC5 NetBSD 4.0_RC5 (MARVIN) #1: Sun Dec  2 06:52:10 CET 2007  johann@marvin:/usr/obj/sys/arch/i386/compile/MARVIN i38
In pkgsrc/wip/e17/Makefile I accidentally put only one argument to CONF_FILES= instead of a pair of arguments, as would be correct.

pkglint didn't report this, so I ran into a typical sh-error ("shift: can't shift that many"), that happens when e.g. sh has nothing left to shift or too much.

This was confusing.

It would be great if pkglint would report this.
% sh
$ shift
shift: can't shift that many

or remove the second argument in the CONF_FILES= line in pkgsrc/wip/e17/Makefile, then pkglint and make install.
