Perhaps this is hard - but why can't 'make replace' simply add a build dependency on pkg_tarup? It seems there are already dependencies on digest and pkg_install. Also, I think it's better for make replace to error out if pkg_tarup is not present; one just builds it manually and then continues. Personally I don't often use the tarred-up old packages, but it is useful when debugging packages. And/Or a 'REPLACE_USE_TARUP?= yes' that can be set by the user.
