nanobsd.sh can easily include packages previously built.  I belong to
the crowd who keep all sorts of readmes and howtos in work directories
to document how i once did something.  So i had a "Readme" in
${NANO_PACKAGE_DIR}.  Its existence provoked the error message "FAILED:
Nothing happened on this pass" in the package building phase.


put any non-packe file into ${NANO_PACKAGE_DIR} and run nanobsd.sh,
watch it fail, weep.


please consider the following patch:
