I found x11-links and osabi to be a great nuisance in NetBSD 5.1_STABLE on my 
old computer.

That's a big part of my reason for switching to modular (pkgsrc) Xorg on newer 

At least once with pkg_rolling-replace, I had stops due to packages being 
removed or renamed.

Would pkg_admin rebuild-tree ameliorate this issue, at least partially, by not 
attempting to rebuild dependencies that no longer exist?
