I am trying to upgrade some ports that depend on one or both of these 
two and I seem to keep getting caught in a loop. It looks like expat 
isn't installing completely/correctly. And since gettext has a 
dependency in expat, that hoses things up.

Information for expat-1.95.7:

Mismatched Checksums:
pkg_info: /usr/local/lib/ doesn't exist

pkg_info: /usr/local/lib/ doesn't exist

This is after "make deinstall && make reinstall", "portinstall -f", 
portupgrade, etc.

If I pull packages and install those, all seems to be well:

Information for expat-1.95.6_1:

Mismatched Checksums:

and this looks healthier as well.

file /usr/local/lib/libexpat*
/usr/local/lib/libexpat.a:    current ar archive
/usr/local/lib/   symbolic link to
/usr/local/lib/ ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 
80386, version 1 (FreeBSD), not stripped

is there a way to make this work?
