On a 2nd "fresh OI148 install" machine, I did not have the above problem,
the bundle worked perfectly on the first "pkgin update".  So I guess maybe
you shouldn't lose too much sleep if you cannot reproduce the problem.

Well, congratulations.  I hear they know what causes that now (:-).

Hmm, but I'm not doing bulk builds on this particular machine, rather I'm
just installing binary packages.  I wonder which of these prerequisites
are run-time dependencies, and which are only needed at compile-time.
I'll work on figuring that out for myself.  It's probably good for me to
learn how to tell pkgsrc about those dependencies anyway.
