The elinks package is missing a file in PLIST. The file is /usr/pkg/share/locale/locale.alias... but as this file may be shared between different packages it is probably normal. However if it is normal the error should not happen, and if it is shared there should be a special handling of this file.

Here's the error when installing:
=> Checking file-check results for elinks-0.11.2
ERROR: ************************************************************
ERROR: The following files are in /usr/pkg but not in the PLIST:
ERROR:         /usr/pkg/share/locale/locale.alias
*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/www/elinks


cd www/elinks
make install

You probably won't have more than a warning if PKG_DEVELOPER is set to NO.


The following patch fixes the error; however this is certainly NOT the right way to fix this.
