While writing/changing Pkgfile files it is easier to get the forgotten details by running "man Pkgfile" than to locate and read 2-3 pages on

I attach one patch with the manual for Pkgfile and one with a small typo in

Don't be shy to say: "no", "it needs more work", "what is this mess", "you should do this", "I'll fix it" or "I'll do it myself" :)
This task depends upon

2022-06-15: A task closure has been requested. Reason for request: The pkgutils on the 3.7 test iso now installs pkgfile.5.gz into /usr/share/man/man5. Since the official release of CRUX 3.7 is not expected to run into any last-minute roadblocks, this task can be considered done.
