Instead of syncing the man page to reality, I'd rather remove all

necessary to edit the package Makefile before downloading the distfile.

I don't remember why I wrote that "in almost all cases the package needs
manual work" two years ago, I don't have any evidence for that claim.

Does anyone have different experiences and can share example URLs that
need adjustments _before_ downloading the distfile?

I learnt the hard way that it is usually better not to adjust anything
before downloading the distfile.

Sorry for that, it won't happen with url2pkg-21.4.0 and later since I
just removed all interactivity from url2pkg. :)
