I have been building binary packages from pkgsrc-2004Q4, and it seems
that textproc/p5-XML-YAWriter is unsure about its name and version.

Firstly it's in directory p5-XML-YAWriter but

    DISTNAME=       XML-Handler-YAWriter-0.23
    PKGNAME=        p5-${DISTNAME}

i.e. there is an extra Handler.

The .tgz file is named p5-XML-Handler-YAWriter-0.23nb1.tgz.

Furthermore when I install the binary package I get this strange
sequence of events:

/packages/All$ sudo pkg_add bins-1.1.26.tgz
pkg_add: pkg `p5-XML-Handler-YAWriter-0.23' required, but `p5-XML-Handler-YAWrit
er-0.23nb1' found installed.
pkg_add: Please resolve this conflict!
pkg_add: 1 package addition failed
azenomei.4:/scratch2/packages/All$ sudo pkg_delete p5-XML-Handler-YAWriter
azenomei.4:/scratch2/packages/All$ sudo pkg_add bins-1.1.26.tgz
pkg_add: package `p5-XML-Grove-' already recorded as installed
pkg_add: can't open dependency file '/var/db/pkg/p5-XML-Handler-YAWriter-0.23/+REQUIRED_BY'!
dependency registration is incomplete

I suppose that in www/bins/Makefile

DEPENDS+= p5-XML-Handler-YAWriter-0.23:../../textproc/p5-XML-YAWriter

should be >=0.23, not -0.23 to solve at least one of these issues.
