I think pkgsrc should cope with that situation (but agree that it doesn't and it's in need of a patch). I'd say it's a bug in osabi if one can't do 'make replace' and just get an osabi package with a newer version. Of course, the depending packages need to be (and should be) marked unsafe_depends, but there are sometimes issues when there's logic to try to prevent that situation. Are you saying that make replace doesn't work, or that pkg_chk/pkg_rr doesn't consider it out of date, or something else?
