	the term "pocketbsd" is rather unclear for me too.  there are multiple
	goals, it seems.
	- hpcmips-specific programs (like MGL2, tiny window manager which is
	  not X).
	- smaller binary option for normal pkgsrc (like "no manpage")
	- crunched binary?

	for the first item, ONLY_FOR_ARCHS should be enough.
	2nd and 3rd item should be solved in a generic way.  if the goal
	is to introduce pkgsrc/pocketbsd, that looks rather wrong to me.
