I've got suse_base installed from pkgsrc on my server. Now I want to
make a binary package from pkgsrc that I will install on my laptop at
a later time. How can I get the 'make package' target to do it's
magic, even though I already have suse_base installed on the server?
I'm getting this error:
===> Installing for suse_base-7.3nb4
===> suse_base-7.3nb4 is already installed - perhaps an older version?
So I want the functionality of 'make package' without the checks to
see whether the package is already installed. I must be missing
something really easy. Unfortunately, I don't know what...
