...which tcl-expect has (says the PLIST).  However, without looking at
the GNU autoconf, I'm not sure if it check exclusively for the expect
binary in $PATH, or the libs and headers too.

The other two packages I need to depend on, GNUPG and mgetty+sendfax, do
not have libs and headers, and I can DEPENDS+= them, but tcl-expect is
the exception.

I will check, but thanks for clearing that up.

Also, I see the OpenSSL is spitting out a "notice" message
when included.  I want to do something like that with this new package
to let the user know that they can affect what features are build (and
associated pkgsrc dependencies created) by setting some environmental
variables in their shell before building

I didn't see an equivilant to MESSAGE for pre-builds, so I was just
going to do:

        ${CAT} ${FILESDIR}/prebuild.msg that acceptable?
