alternatively in pkgsrc-wip there is a set of mk/ files for
inclusion that handle importing directly from cvs, hg & svn repositories -
there is not one for git but perhaps one could be made there and a wip
package could be made for ss7calc which would provide ease of building
'latest' versions inside the pkgsrc framework.
