Re-install pkg for the win

This morning another pkg update && pkg upgrade failed on my FreeBSD 11 CURRENT amd64. It was some 80-ish packages, and it wouldn’t go past py33-atspi-2.12.0_1. It took a make deinstall && make reinstall of the /usr/ports/ports-mngmt/pkg to complete the upgrade.

I couldn’t figure out in details what caused this awkward situation.

Fortunately, with the exception of the necessity to keep enchant locked if I want gedit to have language dictionaries available in the spell-checker plugin, this is the first clumsiness of the pkgng tool I’ve run into in several months of usage, even under the CURRENT branch.

There, just a brief note! 🙂
