Default pkgsrc branch switched to 2012Q2

Hello all,

Default pkgsrc branch obtained via 'make pkgsrc-create' or 'make
pkgsrc-create-repo' has been changed now to 2012Q2.
You may run into trouble in certain scenarios, for example: you
installed DFly from a snapshot recently but you didn't obtain pkgsrc
repo until now. This means your packages are from 2011Q4 whereas the
branch you get in the checkout will be 2012Q2.

In that case either you revert back to 2011Q4:
cd /usr/pkgsrc && git checkout pkgsrc-2011Q4

Or you update your packages with pkgtools/pkg_chk,
pkgtools/pkg_rolling-replace or similar and go on with 2012Q2.

Thanks to luxh for bringing this into attention.
