: and test it.

1) Had 3 failed tests.  Will reproduce if required.

2) Also, what's with
  Installing manpages to "/usr/pkg/lib/perl5/man":
where previously they'd go to "/usr/pkg/man" (mail/mhonarc did this and failed
on PLIST stuff)?

3) mail/spamassasin is installing in
where previously it would go in 
but PLIST is properly determined.  This looks like a deliberate change to
allow updating perl without updating the local packages that depend upon it,
however this doesn't really make sense with our pkgsrc system (unless you
force a perl update in place).

Everything else seems to be OK so far.  Will continue checking.
