Thanks. I think the relevant sentence is
"You must teach the package (usually by manually patching it) to install any configuration files under the examples hierarchy, share/examples/${PKGBASE}/. This way, the PLIST registers them and the administrator always has the original copies available."

does pkgsrc automatically look into share/examples/${PKGBASE}/ at the end of
the installation stage and copies everything in there to
$PKG_SYSCONFIGDIR}, also adding it to .PLIST?
Or does one have to explicitely list them in CONF_FILES? Judging from the
docs its looks like that.
