Pkg 1.3.7 is now released. The port is updated. packages
are now published with fixed shared libraries.

It was found that 'pkg update -f' may be required as well.

Here are the updated instructions:

- Binary package users should run 'pkg update -f' and 'pkg check -Ba'
after upgrading to pkg-1.3.7 and before updating any other packages.
This avoids needing to reinstall anything not needed due to changed
shared libraries.
   For binary package users:
    # pkg install ports-mgmt/pkg
    # pkg update -f
    # pkg check -Ba
    # pkg upgrade
   For port users:
    # portsnap fetch update
    # make -C /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg build deinstall install clean
    # pkg check -Ba
- People building packages for serving to other systems need to rebuild
  all packages with 1.3.7.
