The latest supported release is FreeBSD 10.3 and packages are therefore
build against it.  It creates this soft breakage inside the fixed ABI,
which quite a few people run into.

There are two solutions:

(a) Build the packages yourself on a FreeBSD 10.2.

(b) Upgrade to FreeBSD 10.3 and do a "pkg upgrade -f" run.

And for the wicked:

(c) Let's please address this issue within FreeBSD so users don't run into it.
