See the following examples which use this method:

Those are "reachover" style Makefiles that make installing these packages
easier.  Additionally, libg++ installs the proper profiled, shared, PIC, and

in PLIST.  (See pkgsrc/devel/libg++/Makefile:post-install.)  I'm going to
change rsaref to do the same.
