That is exactly what i'm proposing: an easier installation. There needs to be
medium between "install fscking everything" and install what you want manually
without a) having to maintain a private package b) recommenting a Makefile upon
unpacking a new pkgsrc quarterly release. pkg_chk is also not the solution i'm
going for here.
Also, please do not be in such a rush to close this PR. Allow some other
developers to view it first and see the value in this if you're having some
difficulty understanding it.
