If someone uses whereis to find a port, and an override exists in dfports,
whereis will only list the port, not the override.  

Is there any objection to adding "/usr/dfports" to the search paths for
whereis in /src/usr.bin/whereis/pathnames.h ?
since the system will build the overide automagically why would you need 
to? the dragonfly ports should be for the most part hidden from the 
user, except for the overide message when the port is built.
