Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that 
curiosity killed the cat, I say only that the cat died nobly.

pkg_add doesn't handle binary packages with long symlinks correctly which
were created with pkg_create.

Example: lang/mono.

When pkg_add'ing mono, one gets:
# ls -l /usr/pkg/lib/mono/1.0/System.Runtime.S*
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  16 Apr 30 07:09 
/usr/pkg/lib/mono/1.0/System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap.dll -> 

When extracting the binary package using gtar-base-1.15*, one gets:
# ls -l lib/mono/1.0/System.Runtime.S*
l---------  1 root  wheel  129 May  8 13:43 
lib/mono/1.0/System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap.dll -> 

So the binary package itself is ok, just pkg_add fails.

This breaks dependencies of mono, e.g. mono-xsp or mono-tools when
the mono dependency is installed from the binary package.

cd /usr/pkgsrc/lang/mono
make package
pkg_delete mono
pkg_add mono
