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).
