Yes, it does a good job, just the warning is bogus. Why? Because it suggests
that the packing list is incorrectly specified when exactly the opposite is
true and it _is_ correct and covers all files and directories. I already have
given in to implement the workaround to avoid the bogus warning, but it is a
workaround, not a fix (which would be to eliminate the bogus warning in
pkg_delete - possibly by more complex means than just stopping to print it).
