Hi Dago,

I just commited the updated checkpkg to GAR.  It's the reference
script in gar/bin/checkpkg now, although it's not used by GAR at this
point.  The following modification would be required to force this

Index: gar.pkg.mk

        @echo " ==> Checking compliance: $*"
-       @( LC_ALL=C checkpkg $(SPKG_EXPORT)/`$(call _PKG_ENV,$1)
        mkpackage -qs $(WORKDIR)/$*.gspec -D pkgfile`.gz ) || exit 2
+       @( LC_ALL=C $(GARBIN)/checkpkg $(SPKG_EXPORT)/`$(call
        _PKG_ENV,$1) mkpackage -qs $(WORKDIR)/$*.gspec -D pkgfile`.gz
        ) || exit 2
        @$(foreach COOKIEFILE,$(PKGCHECK_TARGETS), test -e

This new version can handle libraries that are split out as well as
inter-set dependencies.  I've tested with the packages created by the
bind build (since none of them are on the build farm boxes) and it
seems to behave properly.

If you're happy with this, I can proceed to modifying GAR so that all
packages are validated together which would leverage the new
