Wouldn't it be nice to have this fixed in the NetBSD-6 distribution? You are
talking about major lib bumps for NetBSD-7, so this is another catastrophe
waiting to happen to anybody who will have NetBSD-6 installed, try -current
to evaluate a bugfix, hardware driver, software feature or whatever and then
decides to go back to the latest release...
IMO, for NetBSD controlled directories (i.e. /lib, /usr/lib) deleting
everything which isn't in the distribution's mtrees should be fine, shouldn't
it? Thus mtree -r for the specific library directories could be a fine and
workable fix for the postinstall 'obsolete library' fix step.
