Well, I mention it because while I use "pkg version -IvL=", I know the 
FreeBSD Handbook section on updating ports instructs one to use 'pkg 
version -l "<"' which will cause this ports change to go unseen. 
Likewise, "portmaster -a" on my box didn't catch this and I had to 
specifically update/downgrade the port.
