And yet this is irrelevant.
The shell, no matter what it is, passes along
the full path that you specify. If this contains
pkg_delete won't work. That's fine.
But the FreeBSD version will detect and remove the /var/db/pkg/
component leaving the (desired) "pkg_delete python-2.1.3"
And bash/zsh make visible to you what it being passed to
the command anyhow. "echo /etc/h*"
echo is being passed a list of files in etc that start with h.
