Do  make install -DFORCE_PKG_REGISTER [.other args here.].

Well, you're probably more interested in receiving my mail that I am on
sending it ;)

It's in Romania (personally I think that blocking IP ranges _only_ for
being in some country it's bad practice). All machines on have been under my direct control for a few years now
and no spam or other unpleasant things has originated from them. They
are not listed in RBLs (which I also use). They have reverse mappings.
freebsd.org is not listed in rfc-ignorant.org (which I also use on my
mail servers).

The only related thing listed in rfc-ignorant.org is the abuse address
for the net range; and it is listed incorrectly (probably due to a
mistake in the ro->en translation of the auto-reply:  "will be closed"
vs. "is closing", "in the future please use" vs. "please use"); I'll be
contacting them about this.
But, from my reading of RFCs and rfc-ignorant.org policies this
shouldn't affect my emails since abuse at freebsd.org is OK.

I'll fw this to your postmaster; let's hope the mail won't be rejected :)

Glad to help.

IOnut - Un^d^dregistered ;) FreeBSD "user"
  "Intellectual Property" is   nowhere near as valuable   as "Intellect"
