After some investigation I found that my system had a mix of the
linkfarmed pkgviews packages and old-style packages. Did some reading on
the subject and then did the following change in /etc/mk.conf:
#PKG_INSTALLATION_PREFS= pkgviews overwrite
Cleared /usr/pkg and started building again. Hit the wall quite fast on
devel/cpuflags. This fixed it and made it installable/usable:
RCS file: /cvsroot/pkgsrc/devel/cpuflags/Makefile,v
retrieving revision 1.81
diff -u -r1.81 Makefile
--- Makefile 14 Nov 2004 21:51:05 -0000 1.81
+++ Makefile 17 Nov 2004 22:53:32 -0000

+INSTALLATION_DIRS= bin share/mk man/man1
+PKG_INSTALLATION_TYPES= overwrite pkgviews
I believe that the INSTALLATION_DIRS variable is needed because this
package is a bit sparse lacking its own Makefile containing installation
directives creating neccessary directories??
PKG_INSTALLATION_TYPES will tell the system that this package supports
USE_BUILDLINK3 is needed for pkgviews to work. I think this package is
ok for buildlink3. It is almost equal to pkgtools/pkg_chk so I that is
Most other packages are already of buildlink3 type so often the
PKG_INSTALLATION_TYPES variable is enough.
Following this pattern I quickly fixed a lot of packages. emacs, mplayer
gtk2.. and so on.
What am I missing here? What is the catch?
