Interestingly, I just found out this morning that I needed to put /usr/pkg/bin 
first in my path in order to build lynx.  Otherwise it would pick up the 
curses msgfmt instead of the package built ncurses one.  I would think that 
if you install a version of a program that already exists in the base that 
you would want to run it over the original one anyway.  Otherwise, why 
install it in the first place?
