Thanks for catching this; I missed this during my testing.

I've moved the refcount database back outside of ${PKG_DBDIR} in 
revision 1.77 of  It now defaults to 
${PKG_DBDIR}.refcount, which should put the refcount database in the 
same place as ${PKG_DBDIR}, and with roughly the same name to emphasize 
the relationship between the two.
