Subject: pkg/28812: make update does not rebuild all dependecies when
Date: Mon, 23 May 2022 04:00:18 +0000
This is a fundamental infrastructure problem (inherent in the way make
update works) and not fixed, nor easily fixed.
The workaround is to find the package(s) where a subordinate make
update was launched, and restart make update in each of them, the most
recent first. You can find these packages by the existence of
work/.DDIR or work/.DLIST files. Do *not* make clean; that will throw
away the list of packages to rebuild.
In general make update is not really recommended because it can tie
itself into various knots (this being one of them);
pkg-rolling_replace is usually a better method.
