This was a fresh install of 4.0. Cvs'd to the latest. I built a tailored
for this machine and installed it. Rebooted and did "./build.sh ...." to get
and install a full distribution (wo/X11). All this seems to have worked as I
expected (maybe there is something broken that affects pkgsrc??). I downloaded
2008Q2 and untarred it. I tried building perl5. It complained about some pkg
tools so I went to build them. I got some errors about not being able to
bits.c (actually I think it complained that it could not find bits.c). Running
find I found bits.c.
It seemed to me that pkgsrc may have changed since the last system I
set up (NetBSD3.1 and pkgsrc-200 ... been a long time), so I went to the
NetBSD pages and read up on current pkgsrc. That's when it seemed to be
should run bootstrap, so I did. Those problems were what I reported in the
I had a similar problem with 4.0 and 3.1 with pkgsrc-2008Q1 (see pkgsrc-users
Jun 8, 2008) and I did not run bootstrap then. I have a limited amount of
I can devote to this problem so I let it sit for a couple of months before
getting around to trying again with Q2.
I'm sure it's some embarrassingly stupid thing I'm doing ... or not doing.
I just have no clue what it might be and appreciate any insight offered .
(Yeah, I know it's supposed to be easy ... it always has been until now :? ).
This weekend I will reinstall 4.0, Q2 and capture the exact errors I was
