I looked for that (but not in the -Q switch...), thanks.

Though I'm not sure what to do about renamed directories. If it's
a subdirectory of a package, they should be taken care of with a
cvs update, make clean, upgrade cycle.  But should a package get
renamed, what would lintpkgsrc say? pkg_info? pkg_delete?

...guess I could try it later tonight.
