You can always count on me coming up with troubles! ;-)

(I'm serious, I'm doing in such a way that I am going to get errors,
I'm interested in the kinds of errors I'm going to get and what the
fixes are going to be.)

Here's a short version-modulated package example:


It's telling me this:

gmake[1]: Leaving directory
        [merge-license] complete for modulatedpkg.
        [merge] complete for modulatedpkg.
pkgproto: ERROR: unable to stat
Failed to generate prototype at
line 129.
gmake: *** [work/build-global/prototype] Error 1

What is it missing? The destination directories surely get created:

[build10s]:~/src/opencsw/pkg/examples/modulations/trunk > tree
`-- opt
    `-- csw
        `-- share
            `-- example-1.0.txt
`-- opt
    `-- csw
        `-- share
            `-- example-1.1.txt
`-- opt
    `-- csw
        `-- share
            `-- example-2.0.txt

9 directories, 3 files

Is it because of the missing merge targets?
