AFAIK, databases/db4 still does not compile on dfly (the patch on pkgsrc-users
was not commited as far as I can tell), also xine-lib and libmp4v2 (last time
I checked, could have been fixed in the mean time, but after a quick view
through gmane.os.netbsd.devel.pkgsrc.cvs, I didn't see anything done for this

So the new branch will have all the above software and everything that depends
on it broken and hopefully the next branch will have this fixed?
