since the sort-package pullup, it seems the upload script is not working
anymore on the stable branch. The tail of the output is:

upload> Checking for out of date packages:
Reading pkgsrc database: 6018 / 6018 (6117 / 6117) pkgs...done
upload> Checking for restricted and vulnerable packages
/usr/pkgsrc/mk/bulk/sort-packages: pkg_info_cmd: parameter not set
upload> Calculating checksum files...
cd: can't cd to security/gnupg
upload> ERROR: Unable to install required package security/gnupg!
        Bailing out -- you're on your own.

of course pkgsrc/security/gnupg exists. I'm also wondering about the
"pkg_info_cmd: parameter not set" output.

Any idea ?
