Perhaps this is hard - but why can't 'make replace' simply add a build
dependency on pkg_tarup?  It seems there are already dependencies on
digest and pkg_install.

Also, I think it's better for make replace to error out if pkg_tarup is
not present; one just builds it manually and then continues.  Personally
I don't often use the tarred-up old packages, but it is useful when
debugging packages.  And/Or a 'REPLACE_USE_TARUP?= yes' that can be set by
the user.
