That is not true - my misadventure with gtk2 resulting in no more gtk2
on -5 seems to be dated in early May. (If anyone's wondering I didn't
post/complain about it because it might be partly a local issue.)

Rebuilding x11-links may "help" also.
Better off dropping it though - pkg_delete x11-links, change X11_TYPE
to "modular" (we really need to change that so it accepts "pkgsrc")
and rebuild all the packages where grep x11-links
/var/db/pkg/foo/+CONTENTS is nonempty.
