   |  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.
