	That scares me to no ever loving end. I usually end up
with issues. I'm doing a "portupgrade -rf pkg-config\*" for the
3rd time right now. It hasn't worked properly the other 2
times. Some packages had fetch errors, and one had uninstall
issues.  Whenever I've done an upgrade before, ruby and perl
usually end up broken pretty bad.

		Thanks, Tuc
