pkg_chk detected that an update to 'bmake' was, so I did a simple 'cd
$PKGSRC/devel/bmake && bmake clean && bmake test && bmake update'.
Unfortunately, the 'update' step performed a 'pkg_delete -r bmake' which
removed the /usr/bsd/bin/bmake binary required to reinstall bmake :(
Checking $PKGSRC/../var/tmp/devel/bmake/work/bmake/ there doesn't seem to be a
'bmake' binary which I can copy in to place in order to rebuild and recover the
If I manually run configure and then 'make -f makefile.boot bootstrap' then the
build process ends with:
need to unpack mk.tar.gz under . or set MKSRC or MK
make: *** [.mk.done] Error 1
Re-running configure and make with MK set to '/usr/bsd/src/mk' has no effect.
Copying the resulting 'bmake.boot' to /usr/bsd/bin/bmake results in:
bmake: no system rules (sys.mk).
bmake: stopped in /usr/bsd/src/devel/bmake
... so no joy here either.
How do I get bmake reinstalled? *WHY* was it removed in the first place??
Attempt a 'bmake update' on bmake itself.
bmake (and the associated *.mk files) should never be able to be removed by a
package upgrade. This is a serious (build-)system killing bug.
