Please ignore what I said about bulk build. All I wanted to say is
that neither package appears to be in the repository, i.e. pkg_radd
fails for both kile and kile-kde3, I can't see them in


and when I compile them the above mentioned error occurs.

Both kile-2.0.2nb16.tgz and kile-2.1.1nb5.tgz do exist in the
repository for x86_64; kile-kde3 doesn't exist for x86_64 in the

pkgsrc branch is

# cd /usr/pkgsrc
# git branch
* pkgsrc-2012Q3

I do this:

# cd /usr/pkgsrc/editors/kile
# bmake package install clean

and when it is compiling kbproto or randproto or other things (or many
others), then the above mentioned error occurs, and compilation fails.

I start wondering now if the error might be related to Virtualbox---Im
running dfly in Virtualbox; on the other hand, Virtualbox seems stable
otherwise and hasn't given any errors whatsoever. Xorg, firefox, e16
etc all run fine and are very stable.

Thanks, Peeter
