I wanted to install sane-frontends. BIG mistake! This required updating
the pth library, which in turn deleted "small" things like mrproject, kde,
ghostscript, gqmpeg etc etc etc and etc.
Instead of installing a small piece of software, my machine will now be
useless for one or two days (provided that no pkg build fails).
I still like the pkgsrc system, the this particular misfeature I hate.
