There are more packages which have this problem:
===> Installing dependencies for ogle_gui-0.9.2nb7
=> Required installed package libtool-base>=1.5.18nb5: libtool-base-1.5.22nb4 found
=> Required installed package gmake>=3.78: gmake-3.81 found
=> Required installed package pkg-config>=0.19: pkg-config-0.21nb1 found
=> Required installed package x11-links>=0.25: x11-links-0.31 found
=> Required installed package binutils>=2.17: NOT found
=> Verifying update for ../../devel/binutils
I removed the ogle includes as a stopgap fix, but we still have these 3
other packages which includes the buildlink file, which asks the question
why we have this buildlink file at all now that we get this problems?
grub and memtest86 have only pkgsrc-users as the maintainer where Steven
is the maintainer for memtestplus.
