The distfile for the version of rxvt-unicode that pgksrc expects
has moved into the "Attic" sub-directory of the directory from
which it is expected, and cannot be located by pkgsrc.
That's because there is a new version available - in fact,
there have been several since the version in pkgsrc (which is
7.2), since then, 7.3, 7.3a 7.4pre and 7.4 have all come and
gone, current is 7.5.
mv ..../distfiles/rxvt-unicode-7.2.tgz /some/where/else
Either append "Attic/" to MASTER_SITES, or upgrade
rxvt-unicode from version 7.2 to the current one (which,
as of this PR, is 7.5 - but it looks as if it changes
almost daily...). Using a version from the Attic
directory looks safe - those look to be being retained "forever",
if the current version is to be used (no Attic) then please
make sure that ftp.NetBSD.org receives a copy of the
distfile desired, before upgrading the pkgsrc (or
simultaneously), so it will remain available at a location
where pkgsrc can find it (or specify both the non-Attic and Attic
URLs as MASTER_SITES so pkgsrc will look both places).
I have verified that he "append Attic/" solution allows 7.2
to be fetched, and then build correctly, no idea how easy
an upgrade would be.
Building using pkg_comp with libkver, and libkver, with NetBSD
version set to 3.0 (using 3.0 release binary sets). Pkgsrc
is current as of a few hours ago.
