While we're here... is there anything special about PATCH_DEPENDS, 
FETCH_DEPENDS, and EXTRACT_DEPENDS that might be different than the 
depends I'm already processing?  They seem to be the same format:

[dan at ngaio:/usr/ports/graphics/tifmerge] $ make -V EXTRACT_DEPENDS

[dan at ngaio:/usr/ports/www/apache13-modssl] $ make -V PATCH_DEPENDS

However, my manual searches to find a port which outputs a value for 
'make -V FETCH_DEPENDS' have failed so far.  But I'm sure it will turn 
up during my first few test runs.
