Is that wrong? I have not really been following this thread because I thought it was mostly about pango :-) Three comments: with pkgsrc (with or without pkg_rr) it's hugely important to clean out working directories prior to building things. Whenever I have trouble "rm -rf */*/work" is one of the first things I do. pkg_rr tries to do 'make replace' in order. So far all "pkg_rr problems" have basically come down to pkg_rr getting confused about what to do, and an individual "make replace" not working right. So I usually suggest to run pkg_rr with -n and to do each make replace manually, and if they fail report *that* instead of reporting a "pkg_rr failure". This is not about not maligning a tool - it's about reducing the problem to the simplest case. When dependencies change around, the replace method can fail to work.
