i'm attempting to build kde3 with pkgviews.  i moved away /usr/pkg 
and /var/db/pkg to empty out my installed packages.  i began by installing as 
described in the "user's manual" listed off the announcement on

however, qt3-libs refuses to install properly.  i get the following error:

install -d -o root -g wheel -m 755 /usr/pkg/qt3/plugins
install -d -o root -g wheel -m 755 /usr/pkg/qt3/plugins/imageformats
libtool install -c -o root -g wheel -m 
444 /usr/build/pkgsrc/obj/x11/qt3-libs/work.bork/qt-x11-free-3.2.3/plugins/imageformats/ /usr/pkg/qt3/plugins/imageformats/
*** Warning: inferring the mode of operation is deprecated.
*** Future versions of Libtool will require -mode=MODE be specified.
libtool: install: error: cannot install 
to a directory not ending in /usr/pkg/qt3/plugins/imageformats
*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/x11/qt3-libs
*** Error code 1

i don't understand why this error occurs.  i'm not sure if it's a pkgviews 
issue, but i think that by now someone else would have run into this problem 
if it was more general.

i'm building pkgsrc `cvs update`d 2 days ago, building on netbsd i386, 1.6ZK 
( kernel and userland, sources from yesterday)

anyone have ideas?  or is the solution wait until pkgviews is more stable 
before trying?
