This is interesting case - we are running own Poudriere repo and I am 
fine with it. But I am a bit nervous when I know 150 packages was 
rebuilt and just 2 upgraded by pkg. In this case I want pkg to update 
(reinstall) all of them.
If something changed so that 150 packages must be rebuilt why pkg 
doesn't reinstall them? Isn't it the possible place for problems after
