Taken from pkglint's Makefile

DISTNAME=               pkglint-2.04
CATEGORIES=             pkgtools devel
MASTER_SITES=           # empty
DISTFILES=              # empty

In general, any package which is small enough to include its sources
in ${FILESDIR}, and which we have control over.

Sorry for the ungrammatical tone of this answer - I'm slipping.
