This looks useful, especially if pkg_rolling-replace gets taught
to pass the correct value to "make replace".  But why PKGNAME_OLD
instead of using the OLDNAME variable which is already used by

Also, could the new code be generalised to cope with the case where
I have a private meta-pkg that attempts to build both py24 and py25
variants of something from the same directory, like this:

        DEPENDS+= py24-foo>0:../../baz/py-foo
        DEPENDS+= py25-foo{,-devel}>0:../../baz/py-foo

Here, I suppose the pattern from before the first ':' in the DEPENDS
line could be used in roughly the same way as your patch uses
PKGNAME_OLD, but being careful to handle wildcards and alternates.
