"pkgin in firefox" shows the output "firefox is not available on the 
repository" even though the firefox binary package is present on the ftp 
site. Also "pkgin up" and "pkgin fug" does not help.
Other packages like "pkgin in gzip" work flawlessly.

When doing "pkgin up" an index file called "pkg_summary.bz2" is fetched. Even 
though a binary firefox package is available in /All the index file does not 
contain the package.
ThinkPad# cat /usr/pkg/etc/pkgin/repositories.conf"

ThinkPad# pkgin in firefox
firefox is not available on the repository
calculating dependencies... done.
nothing to do.

update the file pkg_summary.bz2 in /All
