avifile versioning does not follow the convention.
I installed avifile-devel:

$ pkg_info | egrep avifile
avifile-0.6.20010814nb1 MPEG-4 (DivX) video player library

The pkgsrc has graphics/avifile, which is version 0.53.5.

Now, I compare the installed version (= -devel) to pkgsrc version
using pkg_info:

$ pkg_info -e 'avifile>0.53.5'; echo $?

Strange!  It should be true.
Change avifile versions, or support avifile-style versioning.
