Changes to the NetBSD Packages Collection in March 1999

Some very far-reaching changes to the NetBSD Packages Collection
were made in March:

+ support has been added for using pkgsrc on Solaris,
+ deinstallation and cleaning behaviour has been modified so that
pre-requisite packages can be installed or "cleaned" on a package-basis,
+ pre-requisite packages can be shown for an installed package,
+ "just-in-time" invocation of su(1) or similar has been added,
when installing packages and the user is not root.

Notable aditions to the packages collection include:  beroftpd,
controlcenter, docbook and related packages (thanks, Rene), ee and
eterm, fromto, jove, micq, mswordview, ptl2, radius, and zoularis.

Notable updates to packages include:  ddd, enlightenment (thanks,
Tim), fvwm2/xpmroot, glib/gtk, gnome, ImageMagick, lsof, lyx, mutt,
nmh (thanks, Kim), scilab, siag, ucd-snmp, vile/xvile, wu-ftpd,
xscreensaver and xtraceroute.

I must also thank Matthias Scheler for his work in keeping up with
the gnome releases over the last few months - it's certainly not
an easy job, due to the frequency of the releases.  What's more
impressive is that I don't believe that Matthias actually uses
gnome, and he has done this maintenance without complaint.  Well,
maybe just a few here and there.

Changes to the Package Tools and the Collection
=============================================== Allow recursive cleaning/deinstalling of required
		packages: "make clean CLEANDEPENDS=YES", "make
		DEINSTALLDEPENDS default to NO, so this isn't
		different from the current behaviour.  [hubertf
		1999-03-04] Added support for Solaris to pkgsrc [agc
		1999-03-08] Added "just-in-time" invocation of su(1) when
		doing a "make install", and the effective UID is
		non-zero.  [agc 1999-03-31]
	pkg_delete: Added -O switch to pkg_delete to only remove any
		references to the package from the pkgdb, but do not
		touch the package or its files otherwise. Used by the
		build system's "make reinstall" target. [hubertf
	pkg_info: Show which packages the package in question
		requires. [hubertf 1999-03-04]
	pkg_delete: Added -R flag to pkg_delete to delete a package
		and all packages it depends on. [hubertf 1999-03-08]
