===> 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 ] You omitted the important part. the 'fulfilled by perl-5.10 but not perl-5.12' is a warning not an error with the -D flag. However, perl-5.12 conflicts with p5-Digest, so you have to pkg_delete p5-Digest and all that depends on it. I often use -f which leaves eg. pkglint with a dangling dependency. Then you can pkg_add -U -D the new perl (since you have a perfectly good package, clean the workdir, and restart pkg_rr. It's important that anything that had p5-Digest get yanked out from under it get rebuilt. pkg_delete -f doesn't AFAIK mark things unsafe_depends, but I believe that all of those things also depend on perl5, so they should get rebuilt. I've done this on several systems and they seem ok.
