That's the first thing I thought with the 9.99.* version I was using when
I posted that original message in the thread I mentioned.

Like you, I tried to exclude packages from being rebuilt with the "-X"
option to pkg_rr in the hope the problem would self-correct and then be
able to go back and run pkg_rr again without the exclusion list.  When
the list of problem packages started growing rapidly, I took a closer
look at the other parts of the series of error messages and that led me
to suspect glib2.

Most likely.  Might have been a case of existing dependency being good
enough to build, then get updated out from under it with some subtle
change that made the next use of it break.

I did not update anything of the NetBSD base system between it working,
then not working and then working again.  Just pkg_rolling-replace and
then explicitly rebuilding "devel/glib2" after the failures appeared.
