Or put it on pkgsrc/mk/scripts? I suppose it could go there, but it's something that users use, and can write scripts to use, so it really belongs in /usr/pkg/bin with a man page. A script that I am going to add to the pkg_rolling-replace package uses it, for example, to ensure that there are saved binary packages for all packages before beginning an upgrade. I find the current situation not broken enough to spend a lot of time on it. Were someone to send a patch to have make replace cause pkg_tarup to be built I would look at it and either commit it or explain why I'm not commiting it. An alternative is to have make replace not save up the package. For me it's always deleted when I make clean anyway.
