My assumption was wrong, it has been "fixed" meanwhile – by emitting
PKGFILE with escaped colons. Great, breaks scripts again here.
No discussion, no apporovals... I whish someone could migrate ports/Mk
into base and freeze it.
"make clean" seems to be fundamentally changed with not yet discovered
side effects. Local scripts don't work as expected anymore. Great! Take
poudriere and unlink -R your own stuff or stay away from ports... I
can't believe how ports evolved during the last years :-(
