No problem.

Basically it's a non-interactive text editor.
sed 's|usr/local|usr|' -i "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"/* changes every
occurrence of "usr/local" with "usr" in all the files in
${pkgdir}/usr/bin. But only the first one in every line (I think). I
assume it's needed because you app by default expects to be in
/usr/local/bin while you install it in /usr/bin.

I may be wrong, but I think that the last echos will not be executed.
If you want to display some messages after installation, use an
install script.

On a side note, please don't break the threads by. Also, most email
clients can hide the quoted text, so no problem there either.
And on another side note, sorry for top posting in my previous reply,
I didn't notice it.
