Actually, I think it would be a good idea. Definitely. If it fixes a known
bug, then it should be updated.
The current value of PKGTOOLS_REQD would seem to be 20000202.
Bumping it now would give us support for IPv6 (albeit through Luke's ftp
client), and include a buffer overflow bug fix, as well as the timeout fixes
which seem to have been made to the pkg_install package today.
I can see no reason to keep the required version down level.
I'll look into doing it later on today.
