I have what I hope is an easy to answer question.
I am trying to make a package for the elvis editor. I have gotten the package setup in /usr/pkgsrc/elvis with no problems. The problem I am having is when it got to the compiling I hit a snag, an XLIB called 'lipc' again - no sweat, lipc is not required for NetBSD-1.4.2.
I commented it out of the gnu configure script, rearchived it, dumped it on my ftp server and tried again - same failure.
Now, here is the weird part, I got to the sources again (on my test ftp server), run configure; make and no problem.
I even tried rebuilding the pkgsrc/elvis directory.
So I am wondering if there is some other record of the package on the system that has a copy of the bad distribturion archive?
