I had forgotten a detail here.  The package builds are all automated.
The source jails are automatically updated before a build.  The package
builder's kernel doesn't matter here.  So head package builds _will_ be
ABI broken for systems older than r318736 either now or in the next day
or two once the builds finish and upload to the mirrors.
