It's nice to have bootable backups ;-) I just tested the same upgrade
and it works OK now :

===>>> Upgrade for howl-1.0.0_1 to avahi-0.6.11_1 succeeded

I miss one dependency though :

# pkg_info -R avahi-0.6.11_1
Required by:

The old avahi-0.6.10_3 also had :

Is this a dependency-merge omission ? It looks like avahi-0.6.11_1 only
has the howl-1.0.0_1 dependencies.

Ah yes, perhaps this is a good thing to check for ? ;-)
