There must be some miscommunication problem.
I use url2pkg very frequently.
I just reinstalled it again (but no change as I see) and tested again.
It works fine for me using same steps as above.
If you need help, please provide exact step-by-step commands and output of
your testing. The script tool can help with that.
Anyways, as I said before: don't use url2pkg for this. It is a waste of
your time. Simple edit the pkgsrc/net/ucarp/Makefile to change the
version and try "make makesum"
