Sorry for begging you with this topic... But... I sent a previous mail 
directly to you, which I'm not sure foud its way to you; I haven't got a 
response anyway. And, I have a question about this post of you:

I don't really know how to update a "module", especially when pkgsrc itself 
hasn't yet been updated. I didn't find any docs about this.
