I am about to do a clean install of all my packages via "pkg_chk -a". The build chokes on

=> Returning to build of p5-Module-Build-0.33000
=> Full dependency perl<5.12.0: found perl-5.10.0nb6
=> Full dependency perl>=5.10.0: found perl-5.10.0nb6
/usr/pkgsrc/20090630/bin/pdksh: cannot create /software/pkgsrc/source/pkgsrc/devel/p5-Module-Build/work.spare280/.rdepends: No such file or directory
*** Error code 1

The only reference to a file ".rdepends" glimpse can find is in "mk/flavor/pkg/".

The package builds and installs just fine via "bmake install" from the package directory. A file ".rdepends" is created along the way.

Apologies - I missed this. Does this still occur - can you try with pkg_chk -av?

 Five years is probably long enough for effective self-healing. I have 
 bootstrapped pkgsrc several times since then, without any local patches 
 for this package. This PR can be closed.
