Would my guess be correct that this:
xorg-imake-6.8.2nb2: version mismatch - xorg-imake-6.8.2nb1
in combination with make update will deinstall all X dependent packages and
do a full recompilation?
If so, it seems a bit wasteful. On the other hand I can understand it if it
enables or disables some features which dependent packages are (not)
expecting and thus are not picked up.
