Question about 'make update' section.


package A depends on package B
A-x1.y1.z1.tgz IS in PACKAGES.
B-x2.y2.z2.tgz is NOT in PACKAGES.

cd pkgsrc/category/B
make update

I expect that this
- builds package B
- creates B-x2.y2.z2.tgz in PACKAGES
- installs A from .tgz package from PACKAGES

but A is not installed at all.  Why?  Is it possible to do what I want
this using only pkgsrc?
