Subject: rar package is now useless (was: CVS commit: pkgsrc)

This change produces a usless package on NetBSD/i386, because:

check-ksyms: symbol exec_nomid not found in /netbsd
In order to extract this package, you must have have booted from a
kernel with options COMPAT_NOMID and COMPAT_12, and EXEC_AOUT if on
an ELF system.
*** Error code 1

The 'old' rar-bin package was a linux binary, which was replaced by the 'new'
rar package.
The 'new' rar package still uses the linux binary, but only on linux and not
anymore on NetBSD.
The NetBSD package requires some very old compat code.

This breaks at least the dvdrip package, because it can't be build anymore
since it requires the rar package.

I can't find a way to use the linux binary, which is even a newer
version and I would be forced to use the outdated bsd rar binary,
if it would install at all.
