For the binary package, we don't accept these right now, but if you have
the package in a shape that it works ok (please see pkgsrc/Packages.txt
for more details), then use send-pr and give an URL where a tar-file of
all the pkg files (pkgsrc/audio/musicbox/*) can be found. If putting it up
on the web etc. is not an options, uuencode the package's .tar.gz file and
attach it to the PR.
