Well, even without the latest change, I was still able to run a
'make replace' and get pkg_install to install.
Nevertheless, a 'make update' should work, so I adjusted the
pkg_install Makefile (1.106) to rearrange the update target. Normally
update does: deinstall, build, install. For pkg_install this is a problem
because the deinstall needs to use the newly built pkg_delete binary.
Now, if you run a 'make update', it should build, _then_ deinstall,
then install. I'm thinking this should probably be the default order
for all packages, but I didn't want to go breaking tons of stuff right
now if I'm wrong.
John, if a 'make replace' didn't work before then you probably have
some other problem. Still, can you try the most recent makefile and let
me know if it help?
