We already have a tool in lintpkgsrc that does various things of those
outside the scope of bulk build. That doesn't need to break the build of
packages either.

"pkg_info -X" and "digest sha512" is literally all there is to it. The
only difference from the "dumb" invocation is that pbulk matches the
list of files it does upload.
