| Hmm. I thought it was mostly to catch people who weren't using "sup
| -o" or its moral equivalent to update pkgsrc.
I want to comment on sup and problems like this in general. I found it quite
usefull to do
find pkgsrc -print | sort >sup/current/last.pkgsrc
The same applies for other sup collections. E.g. a clean in xsrc isn't
cleaning the .depend files which may result in errors. (It did for me after
the sup that brought me the new XFree version.) After the above procedure
you can be sure that your directory subtree matches the original tree 100%.
But be careful! Everything that doesn't belong in there gets removed! (Umm,
you see I assume you have the delete option in the supfile.) You might want
to look for personal changes, some files you have hanging around there...
Hope that helps...
