Thank you very much.

Joerg, thoughts?

Fair enough.  Just for planning, any idea when the next release will happen?

pkgsrc is currently at 20150505.  I suspect lots of changes since then, but I was really wondering about importing for now just the changes from yesterday that address this issue.  Do they do more than add a version file and include it various places?  It would seem that change would fix the immediate problem; a future import would get everything else.

Alternatively, I can just fix pkgsrc in one of the ways that I described and wait for the next import.

Thanks for fixing upstream.
