System: NetBSD 2.0_RC1 NetBSD 2.0_RC1 (FROHIKE) #3: Wed Sep 29 19:34:49 CEST 2004 root@:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/FROHIKE i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	When you run a `make update' in pkgsrc on a pkg that has a dependency
	which needs to be rebuilt, when the dependency build fails,
	the pkgs which share that dependency won't get built again when the
	dependency build is restarted.
	Pick a pkg which has a dependency which needs to be updated.  Let's
	say graphics/imlib2 needs to be updated and we are calling
	`make update' on wm/enlightenment (which has imlib2 as a requirement).
	Suppose we also have eterm installed which has imlib2 as a requirement.

	1 - Run make update from wm/enlightenment.
	2 - Wait for pkgsrc to start downloading the tarball for imlib2.
	3 - pkgsrc deletes the pkgs that require imlib2.
	4 - Before (maybe even while) the imlib2 tarball is downloaded,
	     disconnect from the net.
	5 - Run `make update' again.
	6 - eterm is `forgotten', it is not reinstalled.
	No fix yet (I'm not very familiar with pkgsrc's inner workings)
