It was built on 3.3, but not just for 3.3.  It should generally work.
Because pkgsrc builds take so long, the build starts before the new
release is tagged - but this was effectively 3.4, and there's no ABI
changes between 3.4 and 3.5.  Pkgsrc complains about _any_ difference
in version number between the build system and the target destination.
