	As I understand it, with the buildlink changes a package should be
	able to build with a different version of itself already installed.

	If this is the case (or when this is the case :), would it make
	sense to change the behaviour of 'make update' to perform a 'make'
	before the 'pkg_delete -r'? This would reduce the time a machine
	is without the package, and eliminate the possibility of a build
	issue leaving the machine without that package (though obviously
	not helping for any packages that depend on the rebuilt one).
