While cleaning up some installed ports I ran
# pkg_delete objc-3.2.8_1 gcc-3.4.6_3,1 gcc-184.108.40.20690325_5 gcc-220.127.116.1110628
pkg_delete: '/usr/local/man/man3/Object.3.gz' fails original MD5 checksum - not deleted.
pkg_delete: couldn't entirely delete package (perhaps the packing list is
It seems that Object.3.gz is also installed by
# pkg_info -W /usr/local/man/man3/Object.3.gz
/usr/local/man/man3/Object.3.gz was installed by package open-motif-2.3.3
I'd love to file a PR reporting a conflict between which ever gcc installed the manpage and open-motif, but pkg_delete failed to mention which package had the problem.
The error message should have included the package name or other information which allowed the problem to be identified.
