	The linux RealPlayer G2 beta is expired.  However, there is now a
	linux RealPlayer 7 beta available.  This is a package for the
	RealPlayer 7 beta.  (It also installs the RealPlayer plugin into
	the netscape plugins directory)
	Try to run previously-installed RealPlayer G2 beta, see expiration
	message.  Go to web site.
	Get and extract
	it into pkgsrc/audio/realplayer7.

	(Note that the install process for RealPlayer7 has gotten much more
	intrusive than before - now it wants to install plugins, mime types,
	KDE icons, etc. in $HOME, along with registration - all from the
	install process, instead of waiting for the first run!  This makes
	a multiuser installation such as this much harder...)
