Random thought, when PKG_DEVELOPER (renamed or not) is defaulted in,
can we have the checks throw an error indicating how to bypass?

ERROR: ************************************************************
ERROR: The following files are in the PLIST but not in
ERROR:         /var/obj/pkg/x11/bob/work/.destdir/usr/pkg/bin/bob
ERROR: See <reference to pkgsrc html docs>, or set
PKG_BYPASS_CHECKS=YES on make command to bypass (not recommended)
