(1) Add "pkg_delete; make reinstall; make package" to the list of
things to do while testing. This is to make sure obsolete files do not remain in pkg/PLIST. (2) Add small section about auto-generating master.passwd entries. List currently used UIDs. (3) While I'm here, update the tcl shared library version number (was 7.3) in the example. ;)
