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).
