It's messier than that.  There is some logic to prefer pkgsrc, but
that's unlikely the issue.   The main point is that when you bl3
something in, it decides via whether the native is good
enough or not, and if not depends on pkgsrc.

so the thing to do is to read the, and see what version is
wants, and to read the two pc files to see what they are.   Then you can
read the and see how it decides.  A package should express a
required version, if it needs it.

the other thing that might be going on is that pkgsrc epoxy is too old
for what you need.  But you basically have to chase through the logic
and figure out which step is wrong.  make show-vars VARNAMES=foo is
helpful, for various foo found in  Sorry, this isn't easy.
