On 05-Jan-99 firstname.lastname@example.org spoke unto us all:
# If I have a smallish operation I want to do in a package before patching,
# is it prefered to make a shell script in "./scripts/pre-patch", or to make
# a "pre-patch" target in the pkgsrc Makefile? I've seen it done both ways.
Generally scripts are used if its a big operation.. or you want to do something
horribly complex and need perl, or whatever.. for something relatively simple,
I allways try to use the makefile targets.. so people dont have to go exploring
my directories to figure out how to fix things.
