Sorry for coming a bit late with this, but I think pkg_add -u should
set/unset the automatic tag in the same way pkg_add without -u does.
If I manually run pkg_add -u foo, I expect the automatic tag to be
cleared: I just manually installed it.
I see the utility of a flag to preserve the automatic tag, and I'm
not against adding that.
[The same goes for ``make update''.]
