I'm surprised you call the warning "blatant" even though you haven't
seen it in action at all.

I know that there are legitimate reasons to use the != assignment
operator, and the new warning takes care of that. To make it less
forceful, I have also changed the warning into a mere note.

All in all, it appears 44 times in the whole pkgsrc tree, including
pkgsrc-wip. There are 119 other diagnostics that occur more often than
this one. These 44 cases are not all in error, but they are worth being
inspected anyway since several of them contain code smells.
