   Whatever caused the large number of missing installed files
   seems to be fixed now (and as afterstep has (still) not
   changed, this must have been a side effect of a bug that
   came and went somewhere else).
   However, there remains one PLIST problem in afterstep, so this
   PR is not quite ready to close yet...
 A build today produces:
 => Checking file-check results for afterstep-2.1.2nb8
 ERROR: ************************************************************
 ERROR: The following files are in the PLIST but not in /usr/pkg:
 ERROR:         /usr/pkg/share/gnome/wm-properties/AfterStep.desktop
 *** Error code 1
 make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/wm/afterstep
 *** Error code 1
   Other references to AfterStep.Desktop in the build log are ...
 config.status: creating Makefile
 config.status: creating AfterStep.spec
 config.status: creating AfterStep.desktop
 config.status: creating afterstep/Makefile
 ===> Installing for afterstep-2.1.2nb8

 gmake[1]: Entering directory 
 /bin/rm -f -r /usr/pkg/share/afterstep_old
 /bin/mv /usr/pkg/share/afterstep /usr/pkg/share/afterstep_old
   That's it that I can see.
   Note that /usr/pkg/share/xsessions/AfterStep.desktop  does exist
   (and is also mentioned in the PLIST, separately from the PLIST
    entry that is generating the error).
   The only lines that mention gnome in the build log (where that 5
   character string appear, in any context) are reproduced above, that
   string apepars as a part of the pathname:
   where it appears in the error, and the 2 warnings (that should be errors
   The only pkg installed whose name (or description) matches "gnome"
   (in any case combination) when the afterstep build stops, is libxml2-2.7.3nb1
   My guess is that perhaps if gnome is installed, afterstep's configure
   notices that, and installs a 2nd copy of AfterStep.Desktop - that kind
   of hidden variation must be eliminate from pkgsrc packages (either explicitly
   require gnome, or totally ignore it).
