Fixing the symptoms in our case allows to install those packages using
nih and pkgin
and make possible the regular checks of provides/requires consistency
for notifying
developers about found problems. If you have a patch for those packages
please show it. If you don't have anything except "objected",
my workaround can be considered as
good enough to be commited. It fixes the problem and doesn't create new ones.
Once again, garbage in pkg_summary(5) is not eccepted.
Also note that there are a lot of other packages with CHECK_SHLIBS_SUPPORTED=no.

Not in this case.
