E on FreeBSD: enligthenment stopped working after pkg upgrade

Thank you Peter for your reply and help on building E + Wayland on
FreeBSD on the E Forums :-)

The `pkg upgrade` binary update broke my local E installation. These
must have been some other dependency change.

This pushed me a bit towards E+Wayland once again. I made EFL build
with Wayland and DRM support. I made E build with Wayland support. It
does not run but we are several steps closer towards the goal :-)


Thank you for hints on debug and jpg2k versioning!
