Is there not some sort of convention, if not hard & fast rule, that says
a package name should match the name of its directory in pkgsrc?

I just ran into an issue with pkgsrc/sysutils/amanda vs. amanda-all that
caused a bit of a headache until I finally though to drop my assumptions
on the floor and look in the Makefile just to be sure....
