Hello list,

It seems I'm experiencing some issues while trying to install packages 
that have dependencies that have other dependencies as well, or at least 
that's how I understand it.

  # uname -a
FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE #0 r243825: Tue 
Dec  4 09:23:10 UTC 2012 
root at  amd64

# pkg install mtr-nox11
Updating repository catalogue

     Installing libffi: 3.0.13
     Installing perl: 5.14.2_3
     Installing python27: 2.7.3_6
     Installing mtr-nox11: 0.84

Installing gettext- dependency libiconv-1.14_1

# pkg rquery "%n-%v" libiconv

Is there an obvious reason why gettext dependencies are not pulled in 
and installed?
If I do "pkg install gettext" all goes well and libiconv in installed as 

I've already did a "poudriere bulk -j jail_name -p ports_tree -c -f 
pkg_list.txt" for the pkg repo to no avail.

To mention that on the host using pkgng I did several pkg delete -f for 
all packages installed except pkg.

Thank you,

Andrei Brezan
