True.  :)

Yet the reports are for missing symbols in pkg and how to fix.  It
beats pulling a ports tree and rebuilding pkg which may or may not
end up being replaced by a newer repo version on the next pkg upgrade.

Plus you still get to garbage-collect compatibility features during
major upgrade jumps.

Fixing this issue in 25k at the same times ends up delaying a workable
solution, whatever it may be.

pkg first, then the rest, no?
