i've been using pkgsrc for a while and quite like it. however,
as time as gone on my pkgsrc/distfiles directory has accumulated
a large number of old versions of packages that have been updated.
for example, i've now got 4 copies of libpng, only one of which
i need or use:
xxx> ls pkgsrc/distfiles/libpng*
is there a pkgsrc program or make target that i can use to delete
old, obsolete, or unused distfiles from my system? i couldn't
find anything documented that does what i want...
