Sorry to veer slightly off topic, but I feel the need to point out
that while this may be true for auto-generated R packages, please be
aware that there are many packages in pkgsrc where the directory name
does not match the package name.  The most common cases are those
where the package name depends upon the version of something else
(like py25-XXX, or ruby18-XXX) and then there are those where part of
the version number is embedded in the directory name (www/firefox36
for example).  Thanks.  - Tim
