Wow!  Thanks.  I did that and then the following pkg upgrade step caused a
whole hell of a lot of additional packages installed on my system to get

Also however, a bunch of stuff got removed, but with no real explanation
of why:

    Installed packages to be REMOVED:
            abiword: 3.0.4_1
            gimp: 2.10.24,2
            gimp-app: 2.10.24,1
            gimp-gutenprint: 5.3.3_1
            libwmf: 0.2.12
            wv: 1.2.9_5

So what's up with that?
