In

  https://netbsd.org/docs/pkgsrc/fixes.html#programming-languages

it lists REPLACE_PERL, REPLACE_SH, REPLACE_BASH, REPLACE_CSH, and REPLACE_KSH, but it does not list REPLACE_AWK nor REPLACE_PERL6 which are listed in

  mk/configure/replace-interpreter.mk
>How-To-Repeat:
n/a
>Fix:
They should all be listed, or the text should be changed to say that these are some of them and to point to where to find the complete list.

 Log Message:
 fixes.xml: add more details about REPLACE_* variables

 Address PR pkg/56301 from J. Lewis Muir. I have added further details
 about specific variables, and given more general information about
 where they may be located. (While here, spell "Perl" consistently.)

 I've added further details about these variables. I didn't try to list
 every definition, as I think it's better to give the reader an idea of
 where to go to look, in case this documentation is incomplete at any
 time.

 There's a separate section near the end of the document ("Appendix E.
 Help topics") that lists variables, including most of the REPLACE ones,
 but it doesn't catch all of them, e.g., REPLACE_LUA is missing. It also
 seems to generate a different list depending on the user issuing the
 regeneration command, so it doesn't seem stable enough to point to as
 an absolute reference.

 (Re-sending this email as my last attempt didn't get through GNATS for
 some reason.)
