I believe it would be useful to have MESSAGEs (or +DISPLAY) to be custom
per operating system. This could be similar to the PLIST's common,
${OPSYS} and .common_end functionality.

This would be useful for several packages to provide a MESSAGE (+DISPLAY)
specific to NetBSD (or different operating systems). For example:
 www/navigator (and communicator)
 mail/imap-uw (or my mail/libc-client)

It could be more fine-tuned also; for example, don't have it report
messages specific to old NetBSD on new NetBSD systems. (Or maybe, better
yet, just clean up the MESSAGEs that have references to old NetBSD
