Good point.  I'm not really clear on where I would put the wrapper
script so that it would be found by configure and other scripts being
run by the package build process.  What controls the PATH for pkgsrc?
Is there a directory in 'work' that can be used for this purpose?

Sorry for the questions, but this is not something I've encountered
before.  Thanks for your help.
