Recently I updated NetHack for DESTDIR support and I noticed some
patches where #if defined(__FreeBSD__) was supplemented with
defined(___NetBSD__). I'd have loved to add DragonFly support too,
except I wasn't 100% sure that __DragonflyBSD__ would be the correct
way. So I left it alone.

In an earlier case, with misc/calibre there were some checks on the
output of /usr/bin/uname. There I was even less sure what DBSD would

Maybe it would be useful to have a small document somewhere in the
pkgsrc documentation that would list, for various pkgsrc-supported
Unixen, what the typical discriminators are. I'm thinking of, as above,
pre-defined preprocessor names, uname with various arguments, and maybe
there are a few more (equivalent but different installation or data
directories maybe?).

pkglint could possibly even check patches to see if they add __NetBSD__
and if so, if they mention __DragonflyBSD__ (or whatever is correct)
