I can't parse your sentence.    In all the reports of problems with
pkg_rr, they have boiled down to one of:

  some package didn't build when doing make replace (this has nothing to
  do with make replace or pkg_rr, but is commonly reported as such).

  a package won't build/install because of something else installs, and
  if one had the data about what to do and could remove 1 package and
  install 2, or something like that, it would have worked.

  the wrong package to replace was guessed at (typically about python
  versions, or something else about packages with complicated names)

Are you having some other problem?
