>Description:
While trying to install FreeBSD 5.4 for i386, the install of eclipse encountered an error, which in itself doesn't bother, but 5 other packages needed it as a dependency, and instead of aborting to install of dpendant packages, it proceeded to try to completely redownload and reinstall the Eclipse package FIVE FUCKING TIMES. I hoping this was just a joke, a little developer humor, I mean nobody would purposely write something that poorly would they?
>How-To-Repeat:
Try to install a broken package and a few packages that depend on it.
