I'm meditating over the overrides mechanism for checkpkg.  Since
checkpkg examines a ready .pkg file, the overrides list should be
included inside it.  Where should it go?  Trygve has suggested using
the same mechanism in which postinstall / preinstall etc. files are
handled.  The main requirement is that when the package gets
transformed into the directory format, the file needs to be easily
findable, in the same manner the depends file is.  How would you do
