Packages with non-distributable distfiles (was: CVS commit: pkgsrc/cad/simian-docs=

But if the problem is that the distfile is non-distributable, why don't you
simply record precisely that in the package's Makefile, e.g.
DISTFILE_NONDISTRIBUTABLE_REASON= "Upstram author has gone mad"
and make that abort the fetch phase if the distfile is not already present
locally and then skip these packages in the bulk builds?
