System: NetBSD 7.99.26 NetBSD 7.99.26 (POKEY 2016-02-16 03:01:55) #0: Tue Feb 16 12:33:45 PHT 2016 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
	Currently, pkgsrc build/install messages are preceeded with and
	followed by a line of ~75 equal signs.  Unfortunately, this tag
	occassionally occurs in output generated by some packages' native
	build procedures.  If one is building a number of packages, it's
	fairly easy to miss messages similar to

		The following files should be created for nas-1.9.4:

		/etc/rc.d/nasd (m=0755)

	Since the equal-sign line is fairly common tag, grep doesn't do
	a very good job of identifying these messages.

	Note that displaying of the $package/MESSAGE file doesn't suffer
	from this problem, since the $NetBSD$ id tag line is actually
	displayed (as part of the file contents).  It would  be useful
	if some other similar unique tag could be used for the above
	class of messages.
