System: NetBSD 3.99.15 NetBSD 3.99.15 (GENERIC-1.696-20060125) #8: Wed Jan 25 04:59:39 ICT 2006 i386

	The upgrade of graphics/jasper a couple of weeks ago
	requires a revbump of print/ghostscript - old ghostscript
	packages do not wort with the new jasper (different library
	version I suspet).

	Upgrade jasper (after the pkgsrc upgrade of it), retain
	binary packages for ghostscript (etc) which have not been
	upgraded, and so, apparently, do not need upgrading.
	Then try upgrading to the latest doxygen (or just about
	anything else that runs ghostscript) and watch that fail with
	unresolver references to libjasper (the jasper dependency is
	satisfied, the newer version gets installed correctly).

	PKGREVISION++ in print/ghostscript (maybe more??)  That way
	at least it is obvious that recompiling ghostscript is likely
	to be a useful thing to do.

	Binary package dependencies in current pkgsrc really suck...
