A "simple upgrade" involves removing the old version of the JPEG 
package. When performing the removal, the user was given a list of other 
packages, that depend on the JPEG -- and saw pkg_delete exit. *That* was 
the warning...

Yes, `make deinstall' invokes pkg_delete with the `-f', thus making it 
too easy to shoot oneself in the foot... This may be a problem worth 
addressing, but the warning is still there...
