HINT (Hierarchical INTegration) is a computer benchmarking tool
developed at the Scalable Computing Laboratory of the Ames Laboratory,
a US Department of Energy laboratory. Unlike traditional benchmarks,
HINT neither fixes the size of the problem nor the calculation time.
Instead, it uses a rigorously defined measure called QUIPS (QUality
Improvements Per Second).

The output of HINT is data which can be plotted (the gnuplot graphics
package is useful for plotting HINT output). The plot shows the speed
of the computation as the size of the problem increases. The HINT
graph shows the peak processor speed and the effects of different
levels of cache and memory on processing speed. See
http://www.scl.ameslab.gov/Projects/HINT/ for more information and
an on-line database of HINT results.

HINT also outputs a single number which is the integral of the HINT
curve. This number, called NetQUIPS, can be used for general
comparison between machines.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for benchmarks category

Problems found with existing distfile for superpi:
No changes were made to the superpi/distinfo file.

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:
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
