I'm pretty sure that "warning" doesn't otherwise change output.
It's a cool program but the requirements are thick and the script
is deep (I looked a few times but a good patch won't be easy).
That said "pkg_chk -u" has never failed me, though sometimes I had
to run it a few times to finish the job.
