cvs import newpackage TNF pkgsrc-base
and remove the old package.

With "Moved pkgX to pkgY", example:
/usr/pkgsrc/doc/CHANGES-2004: Moved cfg+ to libcfg+ [grant 2004-10-06]

If your new pkg still has references about the old pkg, it only will
work if the old pkg is in the repository, but it could be removed if
you update pkgsrc with cvs -P (flag to Prune directories in cvs).
