	Sometimes I amuse myself by blowing away my old /usr/pkg (and
	/var/db/pkg, of course) and I do `make install' in /usr/pkgsrc.
	This has never succeeded completely, but at the moment it seems
	to be unusually broken.

	I used the pkgsrc from 990102.  There were so many broken
	packages I dont't have the stamina to report them individually.
	Once things are working a little better I'll repeat this 

	Here's the executive summary:
	* qt-1.42 doesn't work with kde
	* many programs depend on addnerd-1.5, but we install 1.6
	* gtj+-1.1.9 fails to install
	* programs depending on gtk+-1.0.6 don't build
	* many programs report using deprectated unix symbol: 
		perl-5.00404 teTeX-0.4p8 mpack-1.5 mysql-3.21.33b boehm-gc-4.12
		emacs-20.3 xzip-1.8 kdegraphics-1.0 urt-3.1b1 imap-uw-4.4
		abs-0.5 octave-2.0.13 figlet-2.2 icb-5.0.9 
	* ...

	I'm surprised that I got all these errors.  Don't any of the
	package maintainer do a complete install now and then?

	See above.
	Little fixes here and there. :-)
