When you run a `make update' in pkgsrc on a pkg that has a dependency
which needs to be rebuilt, when the dependency build fails,
the pkgs which share that dependency won't get built again when the
dependency build is restarted.
Pick a pkg which has a dependency which needs to be updated. Let's
say graphics/imlib2 needs to be updated and we are calling
`make update' on wm/enlightenment (which has imlib2 as a requirement).
Suppose we also have eterm installed which has imlib2 as a requirement.
1 - Run make update from wm/enlightenment.
2 - Wait for pkgsrc to start downloading the tarball for imlib2.
3 - pkgsrc deletes the pkgs that require imlib2.
4 - Before (maybe even while) the imlib2 tarball is downloaded,
disconnect from the net.
5 - Run `make update' again.
6 - eterm is `forgotten', it is not reinstalled.
No fix yet (I'm not very familiar with pkgsrc's inner workings)
