	I have been trying to use the pkg_create, pkg_add, pkg_delete, pkg_update and 
pkg_info tools in order to make the roll out of our in-house code easier 
across multiple servers.

Whilst the whole thing works I am having extreme difficulty in trying to add a 
package verion number so that we can release new versions of our software 
using pkg_update instead of pkg_delete followed by pkg_add.

The only place I can find reference to the version number architecture is in 
the ports make file but our software does not fit in to the ports tree so I 
cannot use that.

Could you tell me how the makefile ultimately applies the version, revision 
and epoch to the package name so that I can use this feature?
