The changes have been done, but it's a good idea to stay away from head
for about a week. Many ports will immediately cease to work, so all
packages will have to be replaced. First we'll do a bulk run and fix
the fallout, and then do a complete rebuild of master packages. That
will take time.
If you *must* upgrade before the packages are ready, be prepared to
build dports from source.
