Re: bin/49668: bootstrap fails on Debian wheezy/sid

Ahh.  Okay, success.

Okay, I wasn't aware of those directories (not having carefully observed
all of the output).

It seems like what happened was I had a previous attempt at building something
from pkgsrc some time ago and those directories were left over from then.

It also seems like these instructions (generated when it failed) were not
sufficient to resolve this particular problem:

===> Installing for bootstrap-mk-files-20141122
ERROR: bootstrap-mk-files-20140516 is already installed - perhaps an older version?
ERROR: If so, you may use either of:
ERROR:     - "pkg_delete bootstrap-mk-files-20140516" and "/opt/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bin/bmake reinstall"
ERROR:       to upgrade properly
ERROR:     - "/opt/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bin/bmake update" to rebuild the package and all
ERROR:       of its dependencies
ERROR:     - "/opt/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bin/bmake replace" to replace only the package without
ERROR:       re-linking dependencies, risking various problems.

So maybe this could be considered a diagnostic output/documentation issue.

Thank you both very much for your replies.
