Another option would be to just support pgksrc downloading and installing
pre-built binaries. i.e. instead of another distfile, we have a pre-built
So we'd have packages where when you go to "build", unless you are in "I'm

for the "distfile", and for install, you use pkg_add on it rather than the
normal install steps.
