Unfortunately I didn't keep good enough notes as to exactly what
happened. Here's what I do know:
I was upgrading from 1.09 to 1.13, and hit this problem with testcms.
Then I tried upgrading from 1.09 to 1.12, and still hit the problem,
but fewer tests failed. So then I instrumented the library and test
suite, and discovered that some of the internal tables were being
initialized to all zeros instead of having the correct data. Usually
this sort of thing only happens when an API has changed. So then I
forced a pkg_delete on lcms (no other change), and rebuilt 1.13. The
internal tests then all passed.
So, I don't know for sure that this is a header file issue (that was
my most likely hypothesis) or a linkage issue, but it is certainly a
bad interaction between the test suite "testcms" and the previously
