This is CentOS (i.e., OS_VARIANT=redhat).

I am not sure what the best means of differentiating systems like this is, which is why I am asking for advice here.  Perhaps putting it in a conditional like this would be better?

What is the established art for differentiating among Linux systems in cases like this?  Or should we just use ncurses on Linux generally and not try to differentiate among systems?  As Edgar asked, how do we reliably distinguish Linux userland given the information generally available to pkgsrc, i.e., MACHINE_PLATFORM, OS_VARIANT, etc.?

Thanks for your help.
