:No, just pieces which don't hardcode library paths into binaries for
:various reasons.

    I think I agree with Hasso here.  It applies to anyone doing any sort
    of software development too.  Someone might want to use pkgsrc to
    install supporting packages for their own work, or for a proprietary
    project, etc.  So just as I believe /usr/local needs to stay in the 
    paths, so do I believe that installed pkgsrc libraries should be
    easily accessible outside of the pkgsrc infrastructure.

    The only worry here is that having the paths might hide breakage 
    elsewhere in the pkgsrc system.  But I don't think it would be a
    big issue.
