pkgsrc cvs updated a few hours ago.

Well, how do I start?

I just upgraded a machine running an older 3.0 beta to netbsd-3 as of thursday.
That worked fine, so I wanted to bring all pkgs up to date too.

I usualy do "pkg_chk -raus" for this, after making sure pkg_chk and root's
shell are up to date manually. I failed with root's shell. I tried a make
update in shells/standalone-tcsh, but it told me it could not install a new
version because apparently there was an old version (yes, it was "make
update", not "make install"). Ok, I did a "make deinstall" followed by
a "make install". This worked, but at the end complained about not being
able to open pkgdb.

So I did "pkg_admin rebuild" but that failed with:

pkg_admin: Package `standalone-tcsh-6.14.00nb1' has no @name, aborting.

no idea
