Right. This was what I was getting at with my initial suggestion - the
ordering of builds doesn't matter as much to me. I just want to see that
somehow nothing is deleted if a particular source file can't be located,
since by definition the makefile and patches and the like that were used
to install the old package are gone. A failure to retrieve a file as it
stands now deletes a working package and prevents the user from reinstalling
it via the package system.
