What is "repackage"? Make a package again even if file (foo.rpm for 
example) already exists?

What is "clean"?

I didn't look at your code changes yet, but...

It is probably okay to have these targets for troubleshooting and 
developing, but for a normal pkgsrc user they should be able to use the 
standard targets.

At the minimum, a pkgsrc user should just do:

cd pkgsrc/x11/xterm
make PKG_FLAVOR=rpm install

And that should create RPMs for every dependency (and the final 
package), and it would automatically run the native "rpm" tool to 
install each in order (before building next package).
