Thanks for this.  I have a decision to do then.  I am thinking
strongly in installing 10.0 on this machine, but have been hesistant
to do so :(
Everything was working nicely but now a big update with many things
kills things off.
I have to convert to pkg on this machine and forget about pkg_delete,
pkg_install and ... because it won't work after Sep. 2014 or so :(

Best Regards,
