 So I finally got around to trying it (sorry it took so long...) and it
 builds and installs ok, given the modernization of removing @dirrm
 from the PLIST.
 But, it breaks lang/twelf. The compile thereof gives
        src/timing/timing.sml:83.26-84.38 Error: operator and operand don't
        agree [tycon mismatch]
          operator domain: {gc:Time.time, sys:Time.time, usr:Time.time} *
                           {gc:Time.time, sys:Time.time, usr:Time.time}
          operand:         {gc:Time.time, sys:Time.time, usr:Time.time} *
                           {sys:Time.time, usr:Time.time}
          in expression:
            plus (CPUTime,evalCPUTime)
        val it = false : bool
        stdIn:6.45-6.58 Error: unbound structure: Server in path Server.server
 The build doesn't stop, but twelf-server doesn't get (fully?)
 installed, resulting in this behavior at runtime:
        /usr/pkg/bin/sml: Fatal error -- unable to open heap image
        Process twelf-server exited abnormally with code 1
 Do you know how to go about fixing this? Since twelf is the only thing
 in pkgsrc that uses smlnj, I'm a bit reluctant to commit the update
 without fixing it as well.
 (It would also be nice sometime to set up a proper buildlink3 for
 smlnj instead of using a Makefile.common, but that's not entirely
 trivial and not really a priority.)
