It's a temporary solution until we can come up with a way to propogate

not sure I mentioned it before, but :
anyone have any experience using $LOCALPATCHES ?
seems like we could use this for in-package code related fixes..
not sure what to do about actual makefile diffs, etc...
maybe the pkgsrc folks would not be opposed to adding some kind of
makefile-check-warning into whatever mechanism handles $LOCALPATCHES
warn about presence of overriding makefile
or potentially .include it
of course, brings up the whole which-df-branch to match
which-pkgsrc-branch thing again..
