Some are.

The latter.

(I would have had to have done something special in order to compute the
md5 fo teh symlink itself, and I did not do so.  I have just now checked,
and my script is indeed getting the md5 of the files to which the various
symlinks refer.)


It is clear to me now that "pkg_info -g" is either skipping certain files
that are listed in the relevant +CONTENTS files or else it is computing the
MD5 checksums in an odd way.  I do not think that the latter possibility is
at all likely.

I will be looking at this more deeply as time permits.
