"unsafe_depends", I think.

Mhm. The choice of packages for a "make install" is funny, though - right
now, pkg_rr (I should alias pkg_rolling-replace to that, to avoid RSI ;)
tried and failed to "make install" amanda-base, but properly replaced
amanda-client and amanda-server; then it replaced gtar-base properly, but
tried and failed to "make install" gtar-info. Guess I'll try a "pkg_rr -u"
