	<pkgsrc>/devel/kdbg depends upon kdevelop

	<pkgsrc>/devel/kdevelop depends upon kdbg.

	As a result, with clean pkgsrc directories, it is impossible to
	build.  (Make recurses back and forth until it fails, then spews
	a lot of errors and dies.)


	<update pkgsrc>
	cd <pkgsrc>/devel/kdbg
	make clean
	make deinstall
	cd ../kdevelop
	make clean
	make update


	One pkg should stop depending upon the other.

	Previously, I think, kdbg depended upon kdevelop.  (I had built both
	in the past, and udpating kdevelop seemed to cause kdbg to deinstall.)
	But I don't know the rationale for the new (cycle-causing) dependancy.
