By looking at the changes between those version. I just did it, and there are
no major changes.

Ooops... it's a comment, not an explicit pkg command...

No, you need to look into +CONTENTS and delete every file which is specified

There's something completely wrong. First of all, the files are preceeded by
"@comment" instead of being on their own line. Then there's no "@comment
MD5:..." line after each file. Additionally there are a lot of files missing
in thie +CONTENTS file (lib/RealPlayer/*).

Since there are no changes in the packaging list between 10.0.2 and 10.0.4,
just proceed as you did with linux-gtk2.
