I see. But unlike in www/navigator, you only define PLIST_ARCH for the
case ${MACHINE_ARCH}=powerpc. Besides which, you don't actually
provide PLIST's for the other arch's. Plus, the complexity -- the
extra variable -- is unnecessary in this case. Since you seem to have
no variations on MACHINE_ARCH, as "bsdi-i386" and "linux-i386" are
variations on i386 for www/navigator, you could just call your PLIST's

Also, is there a reason you don't simply depend on suse_foo for the
i386 case? In the same vein, does emulators/linxuxppc_lib provide all
the libraries required for powerpc? If so, the IGNORE= for the powerpc
case is unnecessary.
