Exactly!   You are very insightful to see that coming.  Phil and I were
talking on the weekend about the update to openssl packages as well as
openssh. I had been running those updates internally for some time and all
was well with them. We also re-packaged wget :


This respin of wget was to remove a dependency on the openssl metapackage
and to put in a dependency on openssl_rt which is where the libs really are.
This means that during testing the pkg-get script would pull its legs out
from under itself with the removal of wget.

 That explains the respin of pkg-get.

Now then, I am working on a procedure to control this sort of thing in the
future.  It is 2008 now and we are well past the "getting started" stages.
