pkgsrc currently assumes the base system sets OBJECT_FMT.
This is not the case in 1.3 - and in addition to producing
various warning messages it breaks the install in some cases
- I have a 1.3 machine on which I cannot install
imap-uw-2000.0.3nb1 unless I have installed libtool with
OBJECT_FMT manually set.
I think we should test for OBJECT_FMT and set it for older NetBSD
systems, but what is the best way - a switch table similar to that
in bsd.own.mk, or some nasty 'file' command on the pkg_install
