Re: DESTDIR status: 37 to go

I think we should leave them as a warning.  So far I haven't heard a
compelling argument to remove them (en masse) other than that people
find it aesthetically displeasing for them to remain.  At this point, I
don't see how it serves pkgsrc users to remove them.

I suspect it's about 1/3 things that could be fixed, 1/3 packages that
are dead anyway, and 1/3 packages that should be updated anyway, with a
few hard cases thrown in.

The only ones I have any personal interest in are ezm3/cvsup and
ghc/darcs, and slightly arla.

It's certainly fair to ask, for each package, if it merits removal
independently of not being DESTDIR-capable.
