Pkgsrc releases happen every 3 months, so shifting our release over to
March and September means that we'll usually intersect with the 20xxQ1 and
20xxQ3 releases, instead of the 20xxQ2 and Q4 that we do now.  So, it'll
still be a little bit of a race between which quarterly build is done vs.
when we release, but this does give us more breathing room.
