When are @exec / @unexec run?


is there a defined point in time when the PLIST @{,un}exec hooks are 
run by pkg_add(8)?

Trying to find out why the linux32 cache is not updated during 
install of wip/tsm32 on amd64, I ended up looking at the binary 
package's +CONTENTS which has the @{,un}exec sequences somewhere in the 
middle of the file. Since +CONTENTS appears to be processed 
sequentially, you'd expect the hooks to be called at a well-defined 
point (start or end of installation), which obviously they're not.

ISTR running ldconfig32 via PLIST @exec worked for me before. Has 
anything changed here recently?
