make show-downlevel doesn't find all packages which are not up to date.
The parsing code in pkg_info doesn't work here.
Have a package installed which has an p1 or similar extension and then
try to check a package which has a newer minor version, but not the
: pkg_info -e amanda-client
pkgsrc/sysutils/amanda-client> grep PKGNAME Makefile
: make show-downlevel

but it doesn't do it.
