This is the reason why I shy away from the idea of sticking with pkgsrc
- the problem can only be fixed with a working package manager, that
isn't just aware of dependencies, but also knows how to act on them. For
example, if I pkg_add -r X, that needs software Y version 2.0 but I have
version 1.99 installed, it will die instead of upgrading.
