 The system runs 9.99.85, but the build runs in a netbsd-9 chroot
 with libkver pretending that this is a netbsd-9.0 system.
 The package Makefile also lets it build under netbsd-9.0 which
 doesn't make sense for a netbsd-9.0 compatibility package.
 I'm also confused about that tells:
 EMUL_DISTRO=            netbsd-9.99.82
 In any case, the package must not erase things it didn't install.
 The minimum should be to verify that the deinstallation removes
 symlinks to files installed by the package, not anything else
 under that name.
 N.B. the error doesn't occur on aarch64 and maybe other archs as
 the distfile checksum is bad.
