 I've updated an i386-8.0_BETA system with packages from 2017Q2.
 The buttons on the initial panel welcome window are not distinguishable
 from the background and do not highlight when the mouse moves over them
 nor when pressed.  Similar problem with the "Help" and "Close" buttons
 in the Panel preferences editor.
 When choosing which panel to modify in the panel preferences editor, the
 currently-selected panel field is highlighted, but when expanded to select
 a panel, no selection highlights when the mouse moves over it.  One must
 be sure the mouse is over the desired panel before releasing the button.
 Similarly, the "Mode" field highlights, but no selection highlights when
 expanded to list options.
 The checkbox next to "Lock panel" is almost too small to see.
 The sliders in each of the "Measurements" items have no "thumb", so cannot
 be changed.
 Items in menus are not highlighted when the mouse rolls over them.
 Items that invoke sub-menus display the sub-menu, but likewise no
 menu items are highlighted.
 The above observations are not consistent.  The "File Manager" settings
 editor seems to behave properly.  I think that's because it is the same
 as it was in pkgsrc-2017Q1.
 Conclusion:  "No sir, I don't like it."
 Reverting to pkgsrc-2017Q1...
