PKG_INSTALLATION_PREFS= pkgviews overwrite
When I do a "bmake install" in net/gethost I get:
===> gethost-0.03 is already installed.
*** Error code 1
I had done a pkg_delete before and it was successful, but bmake install
still did not work.
bmake deinstall worked and then bmake install worked.
I had same problem with gettext-lib. (My workaround for that was to
remove the empty directory /usr/pkg/packages/gettext-lib-0.11.5nb2.)
If using pkgviews maybe the pkg_* tools could be built to default to "-K
Or better yet, it would be nice to have a pkgtools.conf configuration
file that could say the same.
Has anyone worked on or thought of having a pkgtools.conf file?
