Branch: CURRENT, Version: 20090308nb6, Package name: pkg_select-20090308nb6, Maintainer: imil

pkg_select will display a curses file browser for the pkg system. You can
browse pkgsrc and gather various informations about packages, like avail-
able version, installed version, comment and homepage. A simple paging
system lets you read information files. You can browse both installed
and uninstalled packages, as well as dependencies list and perform vari-
ous administrative tasks to them. A package finder system helps you to
easily locate a package by its name. pkg_select can handle either source
or binary installations when pkgsrc is installed on the local system, or
binary only when using the pkgsrc-over-ftp feature.

If no pkgsrc is installed, pkg_select offers ability fo fetch it, either
by FTP or CVS. It is also possible to update an existing pkgsrc via the
interface.

pkg_select user interface is quite self explainatory, every available
shortcut is shown and annotated.

Log message:
Bump all packages that depend on curses.bui* or terminfo.bui* since they
might incur ncurses dependencies on some platforms, and ncurses just bumped
its shlib.
Some packages were bumped twice now, sorry for that.

Log message:
Fix const correctness issue that has been intermittently causing build
failures for a long time.  (I'm not sure why it sometimes does and
sometimes doesn't, but I think it may depend on different CFLAGS
arising from bootstrapping vs. not bootstrapping.)

While here add a comment to patch-curses__helpers.c; hi Joerg.
