speaking for myself, in the pkgsrc tree I use for my workstation
(ie. not the tree I use for pkgsrc work itself), I only update the
directories necessary to get the functionality I need.

occasionally, I update the whole tree, and last time I did that was
about 3-4 days ago, which is when the new pkgtools was required, and I
started seeing this. :-)
