| Removing DIST_SUBDIR since the package was renamed. Resolves PR pkg/47769
I don't think that was the right solution - the DIST_SUBDIR was there
(I believe) because the distfile has no version info in its name.
Not having version info anywhere in a distfile name is a recipe for
(eventual) madness - putting the file in a DIST_SUBDIR that contains
a version identifier (it was a date) seems like a sane solution.
Of course, since it appears that the distfile hasn't changed in the past
10 years, it may be that no-one will ever be bitten by this particular
case, but still, in general, distfiles without any kind of version ID
are a very very bad idea.
