Hmmm, a few comments:
- you don't see which pkg directory corresponds to fetch:
# Fetch files for gtkmserv-0.5.2:
That should be changed to something like this:
# Fetch files for audio/gtkmserv (gtkmserv-0.5.2):
- it is no longer possible to do a make fetch in a pkg directory,
nor even in a subdir under pkgsrc.
