The problem is that "RESTRICTED" is _already_ escaped with
double-quotes in the package Makefile, leading to the following
(viewed with "make -n fake-pkg")...

echo "RESTRICTED=       "Crypto; export-controlled"" | ${SED}...

which exposes the semi-colon. It doesn't seem necessary to ever escape
"RESTRICTED" in the package Makefile, but it seems like a lot of work
to change all those, besides adding a non-intuitive requirement to pkgsrc
(namely, no quotes in anything in BUILD_DEFS).

Un-escaping the ${ECHO} for BUILD_DEFS in also seems to
work fine, here, but the general problem of arbritary characters in
the "RESTRICTED" string, or any of the BUILD_DEFS variables, remains.
Bracketing the args to ${ECHO} with a single-quote doesn't quite work,
either, because many of the restriced clauses contain single-quotes.

We can use "make" to strip the quotes before quoting (as below). I'm
concerned that this uses a feature of "make" that is not present on
older systems. It's OK for 1.4.3 and 1.5, though. Can anyone verify that
this works/doesn't work on 1.4.2? Opinions?
