A common problem with pkg_rolling-replace is that some operation it does fails. The path to figuring that out is to ask if the operation made sense, and if so find the problem in the operation, not worrying about pkg_rr. In this case, bmake was out of date, and pkg_rr just did make replace package clean and that failed because bmake-20081111 is marked not for deletion. I don't know how this is supposed to be handled; surely pkgsrc should be able to update such packages, even without DESTDIR. What I do is rm -rf /var/db/pkg/bmake-20081111 and then the make install works, and then continue. This removes the registration but not the bits, so make install still has make to run....
