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...
