Actually only the first is a problem, if we go with the using the
just-installed pkg tools. With a little chroot action, problems 2 and 3 go
away. :-)

For a new install, what ever we do for a browser in the base system will
be fine here. For an upgrade, we probably should do something which looks
at existing packages and offers to upgrade them.

Take care,
