It seems you have build tools like cmake that link against 9.x
libraries.  Ideally you should rebuild your build tools before you
rebuild the things use them to build.

Both portmaster and portupgrade are compatible with pkg(8), and you can
certainly carry on using them in pretty much the same way as you always
did.  There is a missing bit of functionality with portmaster in that it
won't itself install from pkgs on a pkgngized system.  Patches welcome!
