NetBSD zaphod 1.6.1 NetBSD 1.6.1 (GENERIC) #0: Tue Apr 8 12:05:52 UTC 2003 email@example.com:/autobuild/netbsd-1-6/i386/OBJ/autobuild/netbsd-1-6/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
When rebuilding mplayer-share, I noticed the process was trying to download MPlayer-1.0pre1.tar.bz2. Hmm.. I already have that.
A closer look showed me that the package NOW wants to download to distfiles/mplayer-1.0rc1/ rather than distfiles/mplayer. A closer look at output from lintpkgsrc -i showd this:
Version mismatch: 'mplayer-share' 1.0rc1nb1 vs 1.0rc1
To which I said "Wha????"
Was a fix for something submitted and then retracted but broke something else in the process?
Assuming you've previously built and installed mplayer and mplayer-share for this nb1 version, try to rebuild mplayer-share. Watch as stuff gets needlessly redownloaded.
Seems to me like a chain of blunders in (a) Makefile(s) somewhere.
