I've seen this happen in the past too, when there's *massive* outage. When
devel/glib2 was broken, it had the same symptoms: A broken package that
isn't being recorded as such in the build report, but which will still make
dependent packages to fail.
In this case, imlib failed because netpbm broke:
imlib-1.9.15nb4 (graphics/imlib) is broken because it depends upon
netpbm-10.33nb2 (graphics/netpbm) which is broken.
netpbm broke (pkg/33347, fixed in the mean time), and apperently failed to
register this properly:
BULK> Marking all packages which depend upon netpbm-10.33nb2 as broken:
cannot create /bulk/sysutils/gkx86info/.broken.html: directory nonexistent
BULK> Build for netpbm-10.33nb2 was not successful, aborting.
Aperenly, sysutils/gkx86info somehow caused it to abort further reporting
and bookkeeping. When I checked, /bulk/sysutils/gkx86info was present, but
it must've gotten created at a later stage.
