Ah, that's encouraging.  I'll upgrade and this bug report can be

I've searched, and I can't find the pkgin.core file.
Besides, the timestamp on the pkg_add.core file matches the above

Strange.  I see the above comes from

                /* check for conflicts */
                if (pkg_has_conflicts(pkg))
                        if (!check_yesno(DEFAULT_NO))
                                goto installend;

but from the installend label it will return from the
pkg_install() function, and rc may be defaulted to EXIT_SUCCESS

Well.  I've browsed some more at the code, and can't find a
smoking gun, and it's possible I wasn't fully alert until the
above happened.  I'm satisfied with upgrading pkgin and let it be
with that.
