Re: 9.0 is getting old...

OK, I think / hope that's a fair assumption, and will proceed to
upgrade my 9.x pbulk host to a newer 9.x.  9.2 would probably
resolve what triggered me to bring this up, but if 9.4 should be
sufficiently compatible I could aim for that instead.

pkg_add will of course complain if you run 9.3 and install a
binary package built on 9.4...

Oh, I already do 10.0 binary packages on NetBSD/macppc.  Dropping
9.x altogether is perhaps a bit premature.

I've started that process for a number of the systems I run, but
also expect it will take a while to complete.
