Hi Jeremy,

I used url2pkg which helped a lot.  I'm wondering if there may be a bug in
url2pkg, though.  This line in the new Makefile seems wrong:
WRKSRC=         ${WRKDIR}/git-core-0.99.9g pax_global_header

mkpatches chokes on that line:
can't cd to WRKSRC (/usr/pkgsrc/wip/git-core/work/git-core-0.99.9g
pax_global_header) at /usr/pkg/bin/mkpatches line 86.

Dunno what pax_global_header is for.  It's a file in the work directory
dated Dec 31, 1969 (!) and contains this:
52 comment=23ea3e201cea0deea909569e08e950a9ec2345f7
which seems pretty strange.  Ever seen this before?
