how do you force up2date to reinstall a pckg it thinks is up to date?
i have a bunch of binaries in /bin that got corrupted -- grep, cpio, mount, and others.
im trying to use 'up2date --force' to reinstall them but it always prints this:
'The following packages you requested are already updated'
No matter what I do, up2date REFUSES to reinstall the binaries. It just keeps saying "are already updated."
Is there a way to make up2date do a reinstall??? its driving me nuts.

The easiest way I've found is to remove the packages and then run up2date again.
