The problem is worse than you may notice though -- accept I did not
realize it until now.
It is broken even if you don't use pkgsrc.
See my PR #30347
I use pkg_add to install "apache" but got apache-2 which I did not want.
(But that is another issue.) So I pkg_deleted apache, apr and expat.
I used pkg_add to then install apache-1.3.33nb3. (These binary packages
were from the ftp.NetBSD.org server for 2.0 i386).
And it said:
Installing files needed by instmp.01332b:
/usr/pkg/etc/httpd/httpd.conf already exists.
/usr/pkg/etc/httpd/magic already exists.
/usr/pkg/etc/httpd/mime.types already exists.
This was on a brand new NetBSD 2.0.2 system.
The binary packages are broken!
You must have a newer pkg_install or your configuration files,
directories, etc are not registered for proper cleanup.
