i have set these in bsd.own.mk and comment some lines in
$base/share/mk/sys.mk (it doesn't affect the next problem):
# override the definitions in bsd.own.mk for Solaris
pkg_info output is good now, but when i'm trying to build a package, i get:
===> Your Zoularis needs to be updated to the 2001/03/23 version.
===> The installed Zoularis was last updated on 2000/05/22.
*** Error code 255
bmake: stopped in /tmp/bou/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install
other ones return to pkg_install
(www@e450n) pkg_install>more /tmp/bou/share/mk/zoularis.mk
i suppose it read it somewhere else but don't know where
trying to build with 'bmake -m /tmp/bou/share/mk' does'nt change things
(/tmp/bou is my test base dir)
