  1. Modify the pkginstall framework so that it manages all aspects of

    jlam committed
    INSTALL/DEINSTALL script creation within pkgsrc.
    If an INSTALL or DEINSTALL script is found in the package directory,
    it is automatically used as a template for the pkginstall-generated
    scripts.  If instead, they should be used simply as the full scripts,
    then the package Makefile should set INSTALL_SRC or DEINSTALL_SRC
    explicitly, e.g.:
    	DEINSTALL_SRC=	# emtpy
    As part of the restructuring of the pkginstall framework internals,
    we now *always* generate temporary INSTALL or DEINSTALL scripts.  By
    comparing these temporary scripts with minimal INSTALL/DEINSTALL
    scripts formed from only the base templates, we determine whether or
    not the INSTALL/DEINSTALL scripts are actually needed by the package
    (see the generate-install-scripts target in
    In addition, more variables in the framework have been made private.
    The *_EXTRA_TMPL variables have been renamed to *_TEMPLATE, which are
    more sensible names given the very few exported variables in this
    framework.  The only public variables relating to the templates are:
    The packages in pkgsrc have been modified to reflect the changes in
    the pkginstall framework.

    developer is officially maintaining the package.
    The rationale for changing this from "tech-pkg" to "pkgsrc-users" is
    that it implies that any user can try to maintain the package (by
    submitting patches to the mailing list).  Since the folks most likely
    to care about the package are the folks that want to use it or are
    already using it, this would leverage the energy of users who aren't

  1. Initial import of efax.

    jtb committed
    efax is a small ANSI C/POSIX program that sends and receives faxes
    using any fax modem (Class 1, 2 or 2.0).
    efax is smaller and easier to install than HylaFAX or mgetty+sendfax.
    As one user put it ``EFAX is a nice simple program for single user
    The ``fax'' command, a shell script, lets you send, receive, view and
    print faxes.  In larger systems, faxes can be sent by printing to a
    ``fax'' printer and received faxes can be e-mailed as MIME attachments
    to an administrator for distribution.  efax can also pass incoming
    data calls to a getty program.
    The efax package includes ``efix,'' a program to convert between
    various image file formats.  To fax Postscript files you will need
    Ghostscript.  To view faxes you can use any program that displays PGM
    files.  efix can convert received files to Postscript or HP Laserjet
    formats for printing.
