OK. That's what I thought .

Well I started with the stable pkgsrc.tgz and mostly updated it with cvs
-q update -dP. I don't really know if this is the proper way - I
was never sure if this was giving me a -current pkgsrc rather than stable. In the latter days I may have tried to update spamassassin and then p5-Digest-MD5 selectively. I have done 'make clean' and also 'make clean-update' for the whole directory on different occasions. Everything started going wrong after a pkg_chk -u after which spamassassin disappeared...

That's what I've done now. I deleted pkgsrc and did cvs checkout -P
pkgsrc. Then I did cvs -r update pkgsrc-2004Q1 -P (I think it was). It
might not be the easiest way of getting the stable branch but I was
going by what I'd come accross in the "build strategy" thread on this list. 

Thanks for your help.
