Yes.  The first part of the syspkg name is required to be identical
to the set name.  If there are entries in the lists that violate
this requirement, then I am not surprised that they don't work.  The
problem can be fixed by moving the file to either a different set, or a
different syspkg.

The only files that I can find with this problem (in -current) are:

etc/release in base.tgz, but etc-sys-etc; should probably move to
        etc.tgz set.
usr/lib/libsparc/*.so in comp.tgz but base-sys-shlib; should move to

/usr/bin/ld and /usr/share/mk/* do not have this particular problem, as
far as I can tell.
