Three separate items in this email:

1) pkg_install/files/view/ hard-codes /usr/pkg as the 
default viewbase. The fix is simply is:

diff -u -r1.7
--- view/   27 Jun 2006 23:36:14 -0000      1.7
+++ view/   6 Oct 2006 21:28:26 -0000

 dflt_ignorefiles=${PLIST_IGNORE_FILES:-"info/dir *[~#] *.OLD *.orig *,v"}

May I commit the above to /usr/src/usr.sbin/pkg_install?

2) And how do you use pkg_info with pkgviews? It seems like it used to 
work. But now when I run pkg_info I only get my bootstrapped packages 
listed. I also moved my /home/reed/pkg/var/db/pkg out of the way, and now 
pkg_info lists nothing.

3) And if the package doesn't have a PKG_INSTALLATION_TYPE defined it will 
fail like:

 => Verifying reinstall for ../../lang/perl5 
 pkg_info: can't find package `gcc3-c'
 ERROR: PKG_INSTALLATION_TYPE must be ``pkgviews'' or ``overwrite''.
 ERROR: This package doesn't support PKG_INSTALLATION_TYPE=none.
 WARNING: Skipping perl-5.8.8nb3:
 WARNING: Unable to satisfy dependency: gcc3-c>=none
 *** Error code 1

Note that the above says "perl"  but this also happens in other packages.
Even in other packages it says the "gcc3-c" lines.
