When I do a mass pkg_comp build, often something fails. Sunday, for
example, kdelibs3 wouldn't build because of a pcre problem; today,
htdig failed because htdig.org was *very* slow and the ftp timed out.
How do I retry the build *without* recompiling everything?
What I did yesterday was to see what packages I had in packages/All and
put them in AUTO_PACKAGES. That's annoying and slow, because I don't
need to do that for everything there; even KDE doesn't require every
package we've got (though it comes close at times....).
Is there a better way? Or should I just give up on 'pkg_comp auto'?
