Summary:                    pkgutil should upgrade cswclassutils before
installing other packages
I just tried to install CSWstunnel from testing, which has a dependency on
CSWcswclassutils. CSWcswclassutils was already installed on the system, but
not the most recent one, so pkgutil offered to install stunnel and upgrade

Instead of upgrading cswclassutils first (which i would have expected as
it is a dependency of stunnel) it went on to install stunnel first. Is this
a multi-repository issue? It would be good to have pkgutil install all
dependencies first before installing dependent packages no matter what.
Especially cswclassutils as dependent packages might make use of recent
cswclassutils features.

If I made a dime on pkgutil I would have to start paying you for beta
testing! :-)

I see what you mean, if stunnel made use of any new features compared to
the one you had installed it would have failed. Even more interesting is to
know for sure it would have installed cswclassutils first if you didn't
have it at all..?!

I'll do some testing of my own and maybe come up with a special case for
