If a file in the PLIST has been touched after installation, it is not
removed when using pkg_delete. I can force the removal of the file by
using 'unexec rm', but pkg_delete will still complain.
Is this correct? If so, how can I make pkg_delete shut up? Is not
including the file in the PLIST when installing and using 'unexec rm'
when uninstalling the right thing to do?
The problem is the netscape7 package: it contains a file that is
touched if root starts netscape7 after installation. chmod'ing the file
to read-only access doesn't help...
I seem to be having this tremendous difficulty with my lifestyle.
