That's totally fine -- we welcome everyone trying to make pkgsrc better,
and I certainly realize there are a lot of details to learn.

Looking at freeswitch-core, I see there are a lot of pkglint complaints
about it not using the CONF_FILES framework.  You can look at other
packages to see how this works.  The basic idea is that example files
get installed as examples, and then copied to real place if there isn't
one, but a user's mods are respected.

If you aren't building with PKGSRC_DEVELOPER=yes in mk.conf, you should
add that.  It's more or less a requirement that a package build with
that variable (which adds a lot of checks) before being committed.  (I
have that set all the time.)

I (on netbsd-7 amd64, which is more or less the standard platform) get a
build failure looking for -lgcc, and it seems to have something to do
with zrtp.

Often we try to package things that are included as source, to bring
updates under a separate package.  But it's not a hard rule in all
cases.  I do see libzrtp in wip.

I will have look at freeswitch-music, that I see in wip, and the -sounds
changes you sent to me in email.
