pkgdb should have known the origin of ldconfig_compat-1.0_8 as misc/ 
ldconfig_compat, and it should have tried to install that port.

(It didn't.  That's one problem, and on your TODO list. :)

However, if pkgdb tried to install the ldconfig_compat port as a  
dependency, and the install failed, pkgdb should not change the  
origin of ldconfig_compat to null; it should leave the origin of  
ldconfig_compat alone until the installation of that port succeeded.
