upgrades?

Also, user customized installations belong in /usr/local; don't mess 
with /usr if you want support from the list.

I'd probably end up ignoring Jan's package and rebuilding my own version 
(which goes into:

/usr/local/bin/netpbm/*
/usr/local/lib/
/usr/local/include/
etc...

Or maybe downloading Jan's -src package with each new release and 
rebuilding it after changing the prefix...and the /bin/netpbm/ ...
