I knew sooner or later this would bite....
for some time, the pvm package existed in pkgsrc as 'pvm-3.4.7',
unfortunately it was really 3.4_BETA7. Ie, pre-3.4
Next we had pvm-3.4.2 (2nd patch release to 3.4) which was newer than
3.4.7. Scilab needed the newer one. So scilab has:
I'm about to update pvm to 3.4.3. I'd like to be able to do
but that has the potential to pickup the poorly numbered 3.4.7.
So should I just force the version to be 3.4.3 or is there another way of
listing this depends? I want "pvm(>=3.4.2 && !=3.4.7)"
