	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
	p1 extension.
: pkg_info -e amanda-client

pkgsrc/sysutils/amanda-client> grep PKGNAME Makefile
PKGNAME=                amanda-client-2.4.2
: make show-downlevel

Here it should tell you that you don't have the latest version installed,
but it doesn't do it.
