Then you won't fix it, because one way or another some people won't be happy :-) It's not a new problem, it comes up every now and then, notably when there are updates to X.Org pacakges that have a good enough version in the host system. The last time I discussed it with Joerg, all I got was a shrug and a mumble about not updating all possible packages. I think the right way to do that would be to include the bl3.mk file into the binary pacakge so that pkgsrc can use information from the installed package and not the one in-tree. But it is a rather complex task and I'm not sure the way the bl3.mk files currently work can be translated into such a scheme very easily. And if I tell you that it is the right way to fix it, you'll reply something along the lines of "hell, no, I only care about this pacakge" and I wouldn't really be able to blame you... -- Quentin Garnier - cube%cubidou.net@localhost - cube%NetBSD.org@localhost "See the look on my face from staying too long in one place [...] every time the morning breaks I know I'm closer to falling" KT Tunstall, Saving My Face, Drastic Fantastic, 2007.
