So do I understand correctly that
once switched to pkg(1), the old
pkg_* tools should not be used
anymore? Is that what the output
below tells me:

# pkg version -v |grep "<"
gcc                                <   needs updating (port has

# pkg_version -v |grep "<"
gcc-                  <   needs updating (port has
libXaw-1.0.8,1                      <   needs updating (port has 1.0.8,2)
libXt-1.0.9                         <   needs updating (port has 1.0.9,1)
xorg-macros-1.15.0                  <   needs updating (port has 1.16.1)

# pkg info libXaw libXt xorg-macros
libXaw-1.0.8,2: X Athena Widgets library
libXt-1.0.9,1: X Toolkit library
xorg-macros-1.16.1: X.Org development aclocal macros

that pkg_info and pkg_version can
no longer be trusted, and "pkg info"
and "pkg version" must be used instead.

It makes sense, but just to check.

Sorry to be so slow.

Anyway, the new tools are great,
working fine on ia64 r231193.

Thanks for your hard work!
