Thank. I moved from my old Zoularis environment to the new bootstrap,
and I don't know how to handle the ln problem that I think I saw
someone else mention:

===> Extracting for xpkgwedge-1.7
===> Patching for xpkgwedge-1.7
===> Buildlinking for xpkgwedge-1.7
ln: /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/xpkgwedge/work/.buildlink/bin is a directory

I installed these along the same lines as I did for Zoularis.  What
am I missing? (Any chance of getting some more hints regarding
setting this up in the packages.html instructions?)
