Re: suse brokenness?

Check the directory for left-over junk and nuke it if so.

So /var/db/pkg/suse_base-10.0nb5/ contained only ldconfig.core, and in turn every package after suse was listed as broken in the bulk build.

I'm surprised that all it takes to break pkg tools is an errant directory in /var/db/pkg, but I guess I never really looked.

At least it's a fast machine so restarting isn't a big deal.
