package: xfig-3.2.4nb3


  After installing Xfig, I got this warning message:

"Either you have a very old app-defaults file installed (Fig),
or there is none installed at all.
You should install the correct version or you may lose some features.
This may be done with "make install" in the xfig source directory."

I looked in the work directory and discovered that the environment variable
had to be set. In the users account. After doing this, Xfig's colors
showed up and the warning message went away.

  My question; should this be added as a comment so that $ pkg_info -D
xfig displays it or is there another preferred method for fixing this
problem? I suppose adding the message, so that $ pkg_info -D xfig
displays it as a post install message, is explained in the pkgsrc

Kind regards,
