$ lintpkgsrc -i > /tmp/outdated_packages
$ cat /tmp/outdated_packages
Unknown package: 'ap22-py24-python' version 3.2.10
Unknown package: 'ap22-py24-wsgi' version 1.2
But these packages are in fact very well known to pkgsrc.
It should be noted, that I have a pkg_comp chroot in which I rebuild outdated packages. Each time I run the update script, it rebuilds ap22-py24-python and ap22-py24-wsgi, even though they have not been updated. Also, subversion (the meta package) is rebuilt each time, but it is not reported as an unknown package.
Set the following in /etc/mk.conf:
PKG_DEFAULT_OPTIONS += -arts apr1 apache22
Then build and install www/ap2-wsgi and www/ap2-python, finally run "lintpkgsrc -i".
Sorry, I don't speak perl.
