I went to install a package today that has a zipped distfile, and
discovered my faithful old unzip 5.41 is no longer up to the task.
bsd.pkg.mk now says that I need 5.42:
thoreau:/NetBSD/pkgsrc/mk 14930> grep unzip bsd.pkg.mk | head -1
Looking at the changes between the two versions, there doesn't appear
to be much of a reason to say we need the latter version, but 5.40
definitely looked bad. Anyone mind if I change that to unzip>=5.41
(which seems to work ok as a local change here)?
Granted, it's not much of an effort to update to a new unzip, but this
is more of a (little) gripe about needless updating of (dependancies on)
Anyways, I feel better after that outburst :-)
