Re: problem installing tin-1.4.4 from the ports tree

George, now we're cooking with gas!

Ok. Having never faced the pkg system head on, I took some peeks through
my current system, and its one lonely package. It appears to me that you
can read the file /var/db/pkg/tin-1.4.19990216/+CONTENTS and manually
remove the files that it mentions.

Once you have done this, you can probably delete the
/var/db/pkg/tin-1.4.19990216 directory.

Of course, if you are cautious, you wouldn't delete anything, rather,
just move them someplace until you can tell if you would have deleted
anything important. :)
