These errors are caused because pkg_add cannot find the listed prerequisites. Install those and it should work fine.


Not to be rude, but I know that. I have those packages installed, just MUCH newer versions. How do I work around this and force the install?

from 'man pkg_add'

-f Force installation to proceed even if prerequisite packages are not installed or the requirements script fails. Although pkg_add will still try to find and auto-install missing prerequisite packages, a failure to find one will not be fatal.

this may help. I don't have a lot of experience forcing packages, but it might get you somewhere
