As suggested, 'make replace' is an option, although I think this will
break something at one point.
When this happens to me (and it happens quite frequently, as I like to
mix and match packages from different branches), I let pkgin do the
job of removing stale dependencies:
$ cd /home/oc/pkgsrc/packages/All && pkg_info -X *gz | bzip2 >
pkg_summary.bz2 && sudo pkgin update
[ I have this in repositories.conf:
$ cd - && bmake update
Surely not an elegant solution, but it does the job for me 99% of the times.
