Or alternately phrased, use "-l'<'" instead of "-L=", like I always
do.  There are various reasons I'd have installed a newer version than
INDEX has, like NEW_XORG, and even version I'd have installed a newer
version than in the ports tree at all, like on a port I maintain and
have updated but hasn't gotten committed yet.

I only care to hear about stuff where I'm _behind_; if I'm _ahead_
that's the rest of the world's problem, not mine   :)
