That's a very good point.

pkg_rr does not notice changes in mk.conf or in the OS.  This is not so
much a pkg_rr-specific deficiency as a basic approach of pkgsrc which
does not track the base OS as a dependency.

So if you update the OS across major branches or switch from modular to
native X, then you need to do "pkg_admin set rebuild=YES \*".

Interesting - I didn't notice that.  This is very surprising; I have
basically had no issues.  I'll follow up offlist.
