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
building it" mode (a makefile define), you download a pre-built package
for the "distfile", and for install, you use pkg_add on it rather than the
normal install steps.

Take care,
