Under the automated pkg-plist section, the quoted commands use command
substitution syntax $(), which is great if you're using sh etc, but
not if you're using csh -- the default root shell.
Copy-paste the commands suggested to generate the pkg-plist in the

		* replace $()-style substitution with `` for csh users
