Re: pkg/41452: pkg_add failure for local packages

Not 100% sure... Actually, I had no media with me when this occurred, so what 
you see is a transcript of a photo I shot with a camera. Might be a typing 
mistake. If it occurrs again, I will check. - By the way, yesterday I got my 
system to work. I started to get failure messages on the USB-stick which I used 
for installation (whether I formatted it with FAT16 or FAT32 did not matter), 
so I tried an external harddrive, on whose second 64GB-FAT32 partition (sd2f) 
the packages were situated. Everything worked perfectly. What is most 
remarkable: I also got failures for OpenOffice's .oxt extensions (dictionaries) 
- I tried to install a few from the USB-stick, and it mostly gave me failures. 
DICT-DE and en_US worked, but e.g. en_GB did not work. These I did NOT get from 
the NetBSD site. They DID work, however, from the external drive. Thank you 
very much for your help.
