| I found the package in pkgsrc-wip, but I didn't test.
It crossed my mind that it might be there, but I don't have an up to
date copy of the WIP packages, so I didn't look (in any case it wouldn't
be where the doc says to look).
It is also a little hard to imagine why a firmware installing package
needs to be in WIP - it isn't as if it is something that we might not be
really sure we want in pkgsrc, it is kind of essential, nor is making
the package all that hard (its just taking one of the existing ones and
altering a few names, right?) so it shouldn't be that the package is
really still work in progress. The driver might be (or have been when
all this happened) but the firmware isn't.
i.e.; please move the pkg to sysutils...
