Re manual step... From /usr/sbin/postinstall - this comment speaks
about an embedded awk script that does this work:
# The implementation supports removing obsolete major libraries
# if the awk variable AllLibs is set, although there is no way to
# enable that in the enclosing shell function as this time.
We should probably use an environment variable to supply that
assignment on the awk invocation (-v AllLibs=1) so that you don't have
to copy and edit it.
