With that I get

        esound-0.2.38       The Enlightened sound daemon
        seamonkey-gtk1-1.1.8 Full featured gecko-based browser built with GTK1
        pkg_info: cannot read meta data file +COMMENT: No such file or
        Exit 2

which is not entirely desirable in the context of the nightly pkg_info
run, since it's going to cause /etc/security's diffing to think that
half the packages on the system have been removed.

(Also it doesn't say which package is broken.)

 . o O ( Why do I have esound installed? Maybe that's the problem. )
