The feature seems like a good idea, however I think pkgmk should somehow
signal this "warning" situation with its return value.
Otherwise it won't be possible for tools like prt-get to let a user know
about an ignore footprint.
It may not be interesting information for some users, however especially
maintainers might want to double check their ports if there was a
missmatch, even if it was just added files; after all, some missmatches
might need addressing, even if they only add new files (think:
documentation files generation if a particular tool is installed).
There's another case: prt-get's logging can optionally remove build logs
of those ports that build ok; chances are that if you use logging, and
experienced a footprint warning (or any other warning in pkgmk for that
matter), you still would want to see the log to actually check the
