 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.
