um...i would have to hazard a guess that it's more important that the
pkg get registered correctly as opposed to avoiding a bug in a
secondary system.  pkglint is nice, but if it has problems they should
be fixed.  pkgsrc should not get fixed to make pkglint happy.  i'll
look at it later today, if i get the time, but i can't promise

that one i don't know about, but i don't have koffice installed.  i
also think i don't intend to.  :)
