Re: htpasswd

Thanks as always for the swift responses, but i have a general
problem with pkgsrc precompiled binaries.  Wherever possible I want to
use precompiled binaries, but finding the right identifier for a
particular utility is often laborious.   pkg_add apache24 doesn't
work, so I had to go to the ftp site, where I find a whole bunch of
.tgz's that might be relevant.  In fact I worked out (using the
principle that anything called apache24 can't possibly be in a file
whose name starts with 'apache24') which was the right file to grab.

Oughtn't it to be easier to just 'pkg_add apache24' and, mutatis
mutandis, passim?
