thats frekeing magic.. how did it find the source in $WRKDIR/specs?
Seriously, how did the macro find it?
(my question wasn't about where it was going to WRITE it, but how do I 
tell it where to find it.  I could not find a ${docsdir} macro in any 
config, Makefile(.in}am). nothing.

cd work/libXaw-1.0.8/
%grep -i docsdir *
%grep -i docsdir -R ./

someone important, or on x11 group:  so that we save a few bytes on 8.3 
ports dvd:

please check out 
and commit.
I changed the Makefile and pkg-plist.
