Well assuming you're going to write a wrapper script or make rule that
just keeps track of what's been installed and then runs something like:

	pkg_info -dD $PKGS | Mail -s 'recent packages: $PKGS' $PKGNOTIFY

then why not just trigger it if the variable specifying the destination
addresses ($PKGNOTIFY in my example above) is non-empty?
