First, the pkg(8) page should explicitly state that there are man pages for
each pkg command.  Since this is NOT a typical FreeBSD practice, it is a
POLA violation to not make it clear.

Second, the '-f' option does delete libcheck. Does installing devel/check
cleanly fix up unresolved dependencies? If not, use of -o is the right
answer. I'll admit that I m not sure.
