Hello all,

[Cross posting from current-users, someone suggested to post it here]

I was trying to install x11/rxvt from pkgsrc-current, checked out from CVS
[the very latest CURRENT version] and I stumbled across the following error:


logging.c: In function `rxvt_update_lastlog':
logging.c:375: storage size of `llx' isn't known
*** Error code 1
make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/x11/rxvt/work/rxvt-2.7.10/src
/usr/bin/install -c -o root -g wheel -m 644 rxvt.1 /usr/X11R6/man/man1/rxvt.1
chown: /usr/X11R6/bin/rxvt: No such file or directory
chgrp: /usr/X11R6/bin/rxvt: No such file or directory
chmod: /usr/X11R6/bin/rxvt: No such file or directory

The following files and directories have special permissions:

/usr/X11R6/bin/rxvt (o=root, g=utmp, m=2511)

===> Please note the following:

$NetBSD: MESSAGE,v 1.4 2003/03/27 07:14:25 wiz Exp $

The multibyte character encoding support is compiled in, but
by default disabled. To enable it, please edit the file 

ls: /usr/X11R6/bin/rxvt: No such file or directory
===> Registering installation for rxvt-2.7.10nb1
pkg_create: can't stat `/usr/X11R6/bin/rxvt'


As you can see, the system tries to continue anyway and it actually
registers the package!

[root@turkish] make deinstall

Running PKG_DBDIR=/var/db/pkg /usr/sbin/pkg_delete rxvt-2.7.10nb1
pkg_delete: file `/usr/X11R6/bin/rxvt' doesn't really exist
pkg_delete: couldn't entirely delete package `rxvt-2.7.10nb1'
(perhaps the packing list is incorrectly specified?)

I hope someone can help me with this.
