any objections if I rename devel/swig to devel/swig11?  It is highly
irritating that the unversioned package directory a historical (and
for Perl unusable) release.

  Is swig-1.1 still needed at all?

  On a broader note, could we please set and document a policy on how
to name package directories if more than one version of a program is
in pkgsrc?  Including on how to handle adding the second version
(e. g. renaming the original unversioned package).
