  If I saw that, I'd force-upgrade everything.  With poudriere, it has
seemed to always do the right thing but I haven't really tried it across
big bumps yet (despite going from 12.0 into 12.1 through the beta).  You
might have some more major changes in there.

  I know pkg-upgrade won't reinstall just to bump up the version # for
an installed package, but I don't know its logic.
