I'm working on the source-code version of bladeenc, and not sure what
the valid package name is.  At the moment, I have:

	DISTNAME=  bladeenc-082-src-stable-2
	PKGNAME=   bladeenc-0.82pl2

and pkglink gives a fatal on the "-0.82pl2" version.  It's passes
"-0.82" ok, but this is second patchlevel of 0.82.  Based on some
private mail from Hubert for the postfix package, I thought that
"N.NNN-plN" was valid - is pkglint being too strict?  Any hints?
