Actually, it knows about the layout of SunOS 4.1.x CD-ROMs, and requires
that you set the make variable SUNOS_CDROM_PATH.

This *could* conceivably be done manually, but then I wouldn't be able to
guarantee PLIST consistency.  I could probably make the pkg a "no-op"
dependency if the appropriate files were already in /emul/sunos.
