This is a small utility to generate a FreeBSD pkg binary package
from a pkgsrc binary package. It is invoked simply, using a command
like:

genpkgng ssam-1.9nb1.tgz

and it will convert the pkgsrc binary package to a pkg one:

% ./genpkgng.sh perl-5.18.1nb2.tgz
Converting perl-5.18.1nb2.tgz

Log message:
Initial import of genpkgng, a utility which will convert a pkgsrc
binary package to a FreeBSD binary pkg.  pkgsrc binary packages keep
more metadata, and do Dewey matching on package version numbers, so
it's not possible to convert in the other direction.
