>=20

Update. I moved all *.a files to /usr/lib/old and did:

# cd /usr/src/lib
# make install

Now, everything including .a files installs and get fresh dates. =
Following the example above:

-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  29242 Jan  5 18:46 librt.a
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     10 Jan  5 18:46 librt.so@ -> librt.so.1
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  23832 Jan  5 18:46 librt.so.1
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  32202 Jan  5 18:46 librt_p.a

-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  30550 Jan  5 18:46 libpanelw.a
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     14 Jan  5 18:46 libpanelw.so@ -> =
libpanelw.so.5
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  11840 Jan  5 18:46 libpanelw.so.5
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  31678 Jan  5 18:46 libpanelw_p.a

So, It looks like the installer ignores existing files if they have the =
same size?

Just curious what=E2=80=99s going on.
