	One option, using pkgtools/pkgchk

	pkg_chk -g		Build .../pkgsrc/pkgchk.conf containing a list
				of all installed packages. Add lang/gcc3 and
				possibly devel/cpuflags to the start

	pkg_delete -r \*	Delete everything. May want to rename away

	pkg_chk -aks		'A'dd all missing packages, 'K'eep going in
