I habe a question about the proper use of PLIST_SRC.

Working on wip/tsm which comes as a set of rpm archives, I find that 
I want a static PLIST for stuff like sample files along with the one 
dynamically created by rpm2pkg(8).

 From doc/pkgsrc.txt, 10.6 I get the impression that PLIST_SRC is a 
list of filenames, and that the file contents are concatenated 
eventually. OTOH, the wip/tsm Makefile as well as 
emul/suse_linux/Makefile.application seem to assume that PLIST_SRC is 
exactly one file. In emul/suse_linux/Makefile.application, providing 
a static PLIST disables the dynamic creation of a PLIST.

Obviously, the documented behaviour fits my needs better. Who is 
correct - the docs or the implementation?
