Testing for RESTRICTED in the Makefile isn't enough. bsd.pkg.mk sets
RESTRICTED automatically when KERBEROS is enabled. And only the
kerberised pkg is restricted. Hmm... Looks like LICENCE and KERBEROS
is supposed to be recorded in the BUILD_INFO for the binary pkg (The
LICENCE for my ssh pkg isn't useful, though). You could check for that
in the actual binary pkg.
Maybe we should put RESTRICTED into the BUILD_INFO too and be done with
At least this one is likely to be a false positive. It becomes restricted
only if it is compiled with Kerberos support enabled. I assume Kimmo missed
that one when he rototilled the Kerberos stuff.
