Various - I guess you would blame all on inconsistent/partial updates
of pkgsrc and say "this mode is not supported".
During long lasting work on changes, I often have to update the pkgsrc tree,
for various reasons. And as soon as one of the (already installed)
dependencies of the pkg I am working on get their pkg revision bumped, the
next "make replace" will fail. And to rebuild that "changed" dependency, I
have to kill my pkgobj directory - which is a no-go with unfinished
changes in that directory.
So, overall I have never seen "make replace" work for me when a simple
"pkg_delete -r" followed by a pkg_add of the binary pkgs available wouldn't
This is all unneeded pain when all I want is run a few changed .so files
in gdb. It probably doesn't matter for simple pkgs, but I am talking about

where even creating and compressing the tar takes noticable time.
Why should I need to jump through this hoops, just to run some test code?
