With the upcoming integration of my bulk build changes in mind, I wonder
how we can get more README.html files. Currently, we have several pkgs
commented out in pkgsrc/*/Makefile for at least two reasons:
1. Avoid conflicts in bulk builds:
With the new bulk pkgs, we can enable them, as a "make bulk-package"
will work around conflicts. This should throw in a big chunk of
README.html files that aren't there right now.
2. The pkg is 'special' and should only be built on demand:
pkg_install and xpkgwedge come to mind here.
At least for these two, I'd feel safest to leave them disabled.
We could disable them conditionally, though:
IGNORE="Must not be built in bulk build!"
(bulk-install/package will only be available if BATCH is set)
We could also use IS_INTERACTIVE, though these pkgs don't really
require user interaction, which is why i dislike IS_INTERACTIVE here.
