 There is also a timing problem:
 When "make replace" is called once, it leaves an .install_done cookie in 
 the WRKDIR. When "make replace" is called once again, that cookie still 
 exists when the Makefiles are loaded, and since there is some code like:
      .if exists(${_COOKIE}.install)
 the second "make replace" will not install anything since "the package 
 is already installed".
 I think there are many more of these problems only waiting to be discovered.
