Re: pkgsrc current dbus build failure

Thank you all for your help. I did move /usr/pkgsrc to another location and pulled in (ftp) a fresh copy of current. That worked. Again, I can’t thank you guys enough. Well, maybe I could.

Indeed the archives in /pub/pkgsrc/current/ are only updated weekly. The
pkgsrc tree with the individual files is updated daily though.

In such a case you can always "cvs update" locally since the archives
include the CVS metadata.
