You may be able to use the info from:
    grep "Renamed " doc/CHANGES

Also, there is work on making pkgsrc record packages that are installed 
versus installed behind the scenes (like dependencies). This 
meta-information could be used so that you only do updates on the packages 
you really installed (and deleting everything else).
