[pkg_rolling-replace] Updating perl and friends


what is the good and proper way out when pkg_rolling-replace(8) fails with

===> Building binary package for perl-5.12.2nb1
=> Creating binary package /var/obj/pkgsrc/packages/All/perl-5.12.2nb1.tgz
===> Replacing for perl-5.12.2nb1
WARNING: experimental target - DATA LOSS MAY OCCUR.
===> Updating using binary package of perl-5.12.2nb1
/usr/pkg/sbin/pkg_add -K /var/db/pkg -U -D /var/obj/pkgsrc/packages/All/perl-5.12.2nb1.tgz pkg_add: Dependency of p5-perl-headers-5.1_RC2nb4 fulfilled by perl-5.10.1nb2, but not by perl-5.12.2nb1 pkg_add: Dependency of p5-Module-CoreList-2.36 fulfilled by perl-5.10.1nb2, but not by perl-5.12.2nb1

[ loooong list omitted ]

pkg_add: Package `perl-5.12.2nb1' conflicts with `p5-Digest<=1.16{,nb*}', and `p5-Digest-1.16' is installed.
pkg_add: 1 package addition failed
*** Error code 1


The first time I encountered the above, I forcefully deleted perl5, then installed the new one, and let pkg_rolling-replace(8) do its thing. But surely there must be a less disruptive way?
