I don't like the version numbers in the variables either, but I think
it would complicate the stuff too much if we tried to come up with a
regexp that gets us a 'better' variable name; after all, it's not that
a major part of the packages will use the functionality at all...

In the ghostscript case, the diff should probably be better like
	MASTER_SITES_${DMPRT_DRV}.tar.gz=	...
so that changing that variable gets us the updated distsite
automagically. Thanks for the note.
