	pkglint could benefit from checking that the CONF_FILES
	setting contains an even number of entries.  Failure to do so
	exposes the user to the following rather obtuse error message
	during install:

shift: can't shift that many
*** Error code 2

	while pkglint says "looks fine."  (This is on pkgsrc-2007Q3.)

	Try to make a package with just one entry in CONF_FILES, watch
	install fail.


	Sorry, none provided.
