pkg_comp uses libkver to similate a particular version of
NetBSD in its arena, so packages can be built that run on
any (older) desired version of NetBSD.
Or it should.
For the past month or so, pkg_comp has been unable to install
libkver - instead it installs a version of pkg_tools in the
/libkver directory within the pkg_comp arena.
build a pkg_comp config file with NETBSD_RELEASE set
(and an appropriate set of binary sets, though
for present purposes, "appropriate" doesn't really
After that anything attempted with pkg_comp will complain about
not being able to load /libkver/libkver.so (or something like
that) - not surprising, as the llibrary never gets created
(though the instructions to use it do)
No idea. I suspect something may be broken in the way that
pkgsrc decides to update its pkg_tools, along with the way
standalone packages modify PREFIX to get themselves installed
outside the normal /usr/pkg tree. libkver attempts to
defeat that by explcictly saying not to check the pkgtools
version, and just use whatever comes - but it looks as if that
ability no longer exists).
A fix for this is important, pkg_comp with libkver is the
truly sane way to build packages and maintain /usr/pkg, nothing
else comes remotely close.
