If one follows -current and uses pkg_rolling-replace, osabi always
fails if the minor -current version has been changed. That's why I
manually update the packages depending on osabi as explained earlier,
and then run pkg_rr. But of course that is not a fault of pkgsrc -
after all, it hasn't been designed to cope with the simultaneous
change of the layered software and the operating system.
