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?
