This takes rather long in the phase "Checking packages which require
work". Can't it just do a "pkg_chk -n -c", and build the ones that
result in "ORBit-0.5.17: version mismatch - ORBit-0.5.15nb7" and not
build the ones that result in "tiff-3.7.1nb3: version mismatch -
tiff-3.6.1nb6 (binary package available)" ?

What I'm currently looking for is a way to install a bunch of binary
packages, which is partly up to date with pkgsrc-2005Q1. By which I mean
that some packages have not been updated, but the set is (I hope)
internally consistent. I want to update what I have new, and leave alone
what is not. There are also older versions of packages around, so I
can't just install everything that't there.
