Let me try another way:

Since pkg has feature macros for building correctly on different

provide binaries without missing symbols is to build pkg with a
fixed set of feature macros for 10.0.

I've done this for projects to retain upgrade paths.  It's not
hard.  It doesn't violate a policy or promise FreeBSD makes, does
