Each package has a revbump.  So the admin doesn't touch them; they just
upgrade all packages.  Having inconsistent packages doesn't work
anyway.  Are you wondering about hand-placed check_ files that are not
under the control of pkgsrc?  Typically, pkgsrc does not worry about that.

Probably nagios-base (?) needs a MESSAGE saying any nrpe.conf has to
change the files it calls.
