 Hi Joerg,
 Understood.  Still I would suggest adding this feature as it's easier
 to use compared to your suggested alternatives, which requires:
 * Knowing how to use DEPENDS_TARGET and BINPKG_SITES which are
 introduced at different places in the pkgsrc guide.
 * Making sure to use the same PKG_OPTIONS for the packages of interest
 in both pbulk and pkgsrc, which if not kept the same may not trigger
 the same issue.
 * Having to build it again, which means more time spent.  For me it's
 1-2 hours for building gnupg2 itself.
 If it can be done in pbulk itself by changing a single flag it can
 make life easier for pkgsrc newbies like myself.
