The name of binary package is designated by DISTNAME or PKGNAME
variable in their Makefile.

	PKGNAME=	ja-a2ps-1.44

	% make package
	===>  Building package for ja-a2ps-1.44
	Creating package /usr/pkgsrc/packages/All/ja-a2ps-1.44.tgz

	DISTNAME=	a2ps-4.10.3

	% make package
	===>  Building package for a2ps-4.10.3
	Creating package /usr/pkgsrc/packages/All/a2ps-4.10.3.tgz
	Registering depends: papersize-1.0 perl-5.00404.
	Creating gzip'd tar ball in '/usr/pkgsrc/packages/All/a2ps-4.10.3.tgz'
