Which is my point. pkg might not upgrade postgresql96-server because the 
version of THAT package didn't change, but you'll see in the output of 
Poudriere bulk that postgresql96-server was rebuilt because, say, libxml 
was updated or rebuilt because, in turn, some of its own dependency 

That's why Poudriere's bulk output is the best list to check what you 
might want to restart, IMHO.
