In pkgsrc ucarp is in the net subdirectory and it seems that it is
currently at 1.1. Your options are:
1: Live with 1.1 until the maintainer updates it to 1.2.
2: Take a backup of the ucarp directory and then modify it to build
A quick look reveals that 2 is probably easy as there are no
patches. All you are likely to need to do is edit the Makefile and change
1.1 to 1.2 in the obvious place, copy a known good distfile for
ucarp-1.2 into your distfiles subdirectory and then run bmake makesum.
Once this is done bmake install will install the package, bmake package
will create a binary package and so forth (as per man packages - do read
this man page it is useful).
If all is well then you might send a mail to the maintainer
(preferably with a patch) letting him know that an update to 1.2 is
available and easy.
