#  Any suggestions on how to proceed here?  Which approach makes the most
#  sense?

If you *want* to keep the empty directory:

        ${TOUCH} ${PREFIX}/foo/.keep_me
(and add to PLIST)

if you do not want the empty directory:

        ${RM} -d ${PREFIX}/foo
(and remove from the PLIST)

The binary pkg is basicly made from the contents of the PLIST, what isn't
listed, will not be included.
