System: NetBSD lyssa 1.3_ALPHA NetBSD 1.3_ALPHA (LYSSA) #1: Sat Nov 22 14:01:52 MET 1997 tron@lyssa:/src/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/LYSSA i386

A binary version of NetBSD's xpm package can't be removed cleanly because
"libXpm.a" is modified by an unnecessary "ranlib" call during installation
so that the MD5 checksum doesn't match anymore.

cd /usr/pkgsrc/graphics/xpm
make install
make package
pkg_delete xpm-3.4j
pkg_add ./xpm-3.4j.tgz
pkg_delete xpm-3.4j
