I've just looked at the file databases/sqlite3/, which I
had updated to the latest pkgsrc branch, and it lists

BUILDLINK_ABI_DEPENDS.sqlite3+= sqlite3>=

which is exactly the version *before* the upgrade (since I still have
that version on my server, which I haven't upgraded yet). But in reality
firefox must have been built with sqlite3- Apparently firefox
checks its sqlite version - at least it gave me a pop-up saying it was
too old.

Ah, that's probably what I did wrong then. I just used "upgrade".

I'll do that! In fact I'll try it as soon as I'm ready to upgrade the
server. pkgin is a whole lot faster than pkg_chk, which take ages to
decide what versions there are and what to upgrade. (I'll still have to
use it to build the packages with pkg_comp, but that is not
time-critical at all)
