That depends on what you mean by the "right thing". It currently
doesn't automatically try to install a new pkg_install, but it tells
you to go and run "make install". If you already have it installed
doing _that_ will tell you to run either "make update" or "make replace".
I consider that to be what's it's supposed to do.
UPDATE_RUNNING only gets set for the duration of the deinstall
target(s) that are executed during the update target, so nothing else
should see it set to YES. Even if it was set, it only matters for
packges that have PKG_PRESERVE set.
