I've been working on pdmenu package. Its DISTNAME= pdmenu_1.2.65,
but we use 'prog-version' scheme. So I tried to set
PKGNAME= ${DISTNAME:S/_/-/}, but pkglint complains:

FATAL: PKGNAME must come with version number, like "foobaa-1.0".
FATAL: you seem to using underline before version number in PKGNAME. it has to be hyphen.

Anyway the pkg works, and is registered as pdmenu-1.2.65 (with the hyphen).
Maybe we should tell pkglint that above trick is permitted?
