But this misses the pkgsrc patches, build environment, configure 
switches, make flags, etc. The pkgsrc makes it easier to use the 
pkgsrc-provide dependencies.  My workflow is to work directly in the 
work directory. I don't like it but makes it easier for me.  (I used to 
use the some replace make variable to overwrite.)
