Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.0nb1, Package name: spiff-1.0nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Spiff compares the contents of file1 and file2 and prints a
description of the important differences between the files. White
space is ignored except to separate other objects. Spiff maintains
tolerances below which differences between two floating point numbers
are ignored. Differences in floating point notation (such as 3.4 3.40
and 3.4e01) are treated as unimportant. User specified delimited
strings (i.e. comments) can also be ignored. Inside other user
specified delimited strings (i.e. quoted strings) whitespace can be

No changes made to these distinfo files.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Log message:
Fix a segfault on NetBSD/amd64 (at least):

 - Include standard headers (stdlib.h, string.h, stdio.h) in misc.h to
   avoid conflicts with built-in declarations of functions.
 - Change CFLAGS= in Makefile to CFLAGS+= to use pkgsrc-provided CFLAGS.
 - Include termcap.buildlink3.mk to handle termcap properly.
 - Add DESTDIR support, use AUTO_MKDIRS.

 Now I can actually use it! ;)

Log message:
Point MAINTAINER to pkgsrc-users@NetBSD.org in the case where no
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
