I actually had a similar ordeal just yesterday when trying to compile
balsa2 from pkgsrc. I went through libgnomeui, libgnome, libbonoboui,
libbonobo, and a few others I can't remember, pkg_delete -f'ing them all
and make reinstall'ing them. at one point I just ran a make upate on
one of the higher-up deps in hopes that it would upgrade everything that
it depended on. This worked, but somehow ended up rebuilding GIMP as
well (?). This is probably a misunderstanding on my part of how to use
I'm not sure how it could be applied to update individual packages, or
dependency trees, but an article posted on the #NetBSD Community Blog a
couple of days ago goes over different ways to keep pkgs up-to-date, and
the usage of lintpkgsrc (pkglint) and pkgdepgraph.
Hope some of this helps, and I wasn't just rambling to myself :).
