I find them to be a mild nuisance.  Once can almost always just
pkg_delete x11-links as it is a build dependency only, usually.  And
fairly few things depend on osabi.
That's what I did and it worked. Removed x11-links, updated osabi, resinstalled x11-links!

Tedious to remember that it is needed, but quick to do. the stupid thing is that one needs to remember to update these two packages first, before making blindly "make update" or "make replace" in any other package.
