This was news to me, but maybe I haven't been paying adequate attention.
What I want is a target that explains which situation I am in:
package is not installed
package is installed and does not match pkgsrc
package is installed and does match pkgsrc
Essentially this is like pkg_chk for one package. I don't care what I
type for this, and I don't really care what the output looks like, but
of course I would prefer that it be regular and machine parseable.
