	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
	cd ..../pkgsrc/x11/rxvt-unicode
	make fetch

	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 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.
