Consider the following output that I currently have on my system:
===> lars@glengoyne:/usr/pkgsrc/chat/xchat2 %make show-needs-update
chat/xchat2 => (none) => needs install of xchat-2.4.1nb1
===> lars@glengoyne:/usr/pkgsrc/chat/xchat2 %pkg_info | grep xchat
xchat-2.4.1nb1 X11 (X Window System) IRC client, using the GTK2
That version of xchat I have installed is indeed from chat/xchat2.
Adding 'PKGBASE=xchat' in the Makefile.common fixes the problem. Also at
least mail/sylpheed-devel suffers from the same problem.
