Anyone care if I remove the GNU_PROGRAM_PREFIX support from pkgsrc/editors/ed?

I think if we can keep GNU_PROGRAM_PREFIX, it would be better. This is one of the programs that duplicates functionality in the base system of most BSDs, so if we can allow for easy disambiguation of the basenames, let's do it.

Two other alternatives: I install manually with post-install target or I patch the and configure* to add --program-prefix support.

I think it's simplest to patch the The configure script supports --program-prefix and --transform-sed by default, so you should only need to fix up the file.
