./pkgtools/packagekit, System activated daemon for managing software updates

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.4.0nb42, Package name: packagekit-0.4.0nb42, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

PackageKit is a system designed to make installing and updating software on
your computer easier. The primary design goal is to unify all the software
graphical tools used in different distributions, and use some of the latest
technology like PolicyKit to make the process suck less.

The actual nuts-and-bolts distro tool (yum, apt, conary, etc) is used by
PackageKit using compiled and scripted helpers. PackageKit isn't meant to
replace these tools, instead providing a common set of abstractions that can
be used by standard GUI and text mode package managers.

PackageKit itself is a system activated daemon called packagekitd. Being
system activated means that it's only being run when the user is using a text
mode or graphical tool, and quits when it's no longer being used. This means
we don't delay the boot sequence or session startup and don't consume memory
when not being used.

Revert "Specify readline requirement on 30 packages"

Many of these definitely do not depend on readline.
So there must be a different underlying problem, and that
should be tracked down instead of papering over it.

Log message:
Specify readline requirement on 30 packages

Solves:
/usr/libexec/binutils225/elf/ld.gold: error: cannot find -lreadline

The missing specification is obvious on DragonFly because there's
no publically accessible version of readline in base.
