DUH.ORG: Pointing out the obvious since 1994.
"make undo-replace" does not work if the original package version was not
identical to the one being installed by "make replace". Due to the
hyper-overloading of the oldname/newname files in flavor/pkg/replace.mk,
the oldname doesn't even exist anywhere once "undo-replace-names" runs
(as that clobbers the oldname file with the new package name).
Install a package, say, "somepkg-1.0".
In pkgsrc reflecting a new version, say, "somepkg-1.1", do "make replace".
See "Re-adding somepkg-1.1 ..." and an error, where it should have
I started to work on this, but got lost in the reused code of replace-*
centered around the reuse of the oldname/newname files. Perhaps instead
a separate "from"/"to" name pair should be used for the shared ops?

jlam is most likely to know how to fix this, as he made flavor/pkg/replace.mk
and the related glue....

Back to role account, jlam lost his commit bit.
