I wanted to play with some newer packages on my powerbook, so I set up a
second pkgsrc tree with sources about 6 months more recent than my
previous one (current as of yesterday), and did a fresh bootstrap and
everything, then started building packages with 'make package'. Much to
my surprise, after a successful build, pkg_info wasn't showing the newly
compiled packages as installed! I was able to succesfully pkg_add them,
A little more investigation showed that when doing the 'make package',
the registration info is put in /var/db, while pkg_info and pkg_add put
things in the --pkgdbdir I configured at bootstrap.
Am I forgetting to do something here? This seems like a problematic
situation... things should be consistent. Suggestions?
