- Lines like

- no?

	Actually, I mis-spoke.. It is pkg_create that
(unexpectedly, to me) adds everything packaged to the package
database..  This was somewhat surprising to me, as I would have
expected pkg_add to add them during (what would be) the `make
install' phase, and pkg_create wouldn't care..

	For use I make of pkg_create, it's a minor enough
nuisance, and it doesn't affect my customers at all.
