        lang/perl5 has just been upgraded - and now looks for add-on
        modules in different places than it did before.  p5-* packages
        built with the new perl will, I assume, go into the appropriate
        places, but binary packages built earlier do not.   Yet, there's
        no indication (aside when other things fail) that there is any
        reason to upgrade the binary package.

        After perl was (successfully) upgraded, I happened to be upgrading
        lang/mono - I use pkg_comp with NetBSD 3.0 release sets (and libkver)
        but I can't believe that's in any way related.

        When this build started perl5 5.10.0 would have been installed
        in the sandbox already, that upgrade had not long happened.

        The build all starts out looking fine ...

        There are lots more dependencies all successfully installed.
        No problem there (notice that p5-XML-Parser-2.36 was one of
        the dependencies successfully installed).

        p5-XML-Parser (the pkgsrc entry) was last updated Nov 2007,
        that's when the binary package that was just installed was
        built for me ...    2.36 is still the current version.

        /local/packages/3.0 is /pkg_comp/packages in the sandbox.

        Eventually we get to ...

        Still all as would be expected.  Lots of successfull compilation
        follows (with the occasional warning, I'm assuming they're normal)
        Until ...

        which is not all that surprising, as XML/ cannot
        possibly be in a perl5/5.10.0 directory, perl 5.10 dit not
        exist in November 2007 when the p5-XML-Parser package was
        created.  Instead, it got installed as ...

-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  27103 Nov 20  2007 

        Under the 5.8.0 sub-dir.   That's where it was before, and as
        nothing has happened to change it, that's where it remains.

        Obviously the simple workaround would be for me (everyone I assume)
        to simply delete all the p5-* packages I have built, and allow them
        to be rebuilt as needed.

        But when rebuilt, aside from the build date (and internal path
        names, etc) they will be indistinguishable from the new ones.
        Other binary packages that I have depend upon p5-* and some
        of those may possibly be still expecting stuff to live in
        the places they existed when the other binary packages were

        I'm assuming that the short term fix is going to be one GIANT
        revbump on all of the p5 packages, and everything that depends
        upon them, so the whole world gets rebuilt with perl 5.10
        instead of all assuming 5.8

        Longer term, a better fix is needed - when binary packages are
        built that depend upon a specific version of some other package,
        they must be made to only successfully install when that particular
        version exists, and to fail otherwise.  And their names must include
        a reference to the version number of the underlying package.

        That is, if the p5-XML-Parser binary I have failed to insatll,
        as it found perl5.10 instead of perl 5.8 that would be OK, then
        it would just have been rebuilt.   But when rebuilt, it must
        produce a differnt binary package (filename) than the existing
        one, or the existing one would be destroyed, and anything else
        I have that depends upon the old version of p5-XML-Parser would
        be unable to work (and that one, now perl 5.8 is gone, is
        effectively impossible to rebuild.)

        I suspect this PR is rather related to pkg/35012 ...  (but the
        short term revbump fix is needed quickly, rather than just
        sometime in the distant future as for 35012.)
