 Other than the fact that mit-krb5 (non-native) IS 1.8?
 (which was both an API & ABI bump from the previous pkgsrc version as
 far as I understand the definition of those variables)
 Why is it that those variables are used both to say what version is
 provided by a package AND for what version is required by a dependent
 package?  That just seems broken to me... or am I missing something in
 the concept?
 Are these variables better explained/defined someplace other than ?
