I've been using the Perl Text-Brew package for a while now, so I thought I'd 
submit the necessary files to add it to pkgsrc, in case someone else can use it 
too.  What's nice about it is that it allows for configurable edit distances 
and also shows how it calculated the edit distance.  I use it to apply 
custom-weighted edit distances for particular scenarios in data analysis.

Make file:

# $NetBSD$

DISTNAME=       Text-Brew-0.02
PKGNAME=        p5-${DISTNAME}
CATEGORIES=     textproc perl5

COMMENT=        Perl module for configurable and analyzable edit distances

PKG_INSTALLATION_TYPES= overwrite pkgviews
PKG_DESTDIR_SUPPORT=    user-destdir

PERL5_PACKLIST=         auto/Text/Brew/.packlist

.include "../../lang/perl5/"
.include "../../mk/"

DESCR file:

This module implements the Brew edit distance that is very close to the
dynamic programming technique used for the Wagner-Fischer (and so for
the Levenshtein) edit distance.  The difference here is that you have
separated costs for the DELetion and INSertion operations (but with the
default to 1 for both, you obtain the Levenshtein edit distance). But
the most interesting feature is that you can obtain the description of
the edits needed to transform the first string into the second one (not
vice versa: here DELetions are separated from INSertions).
