Yes, but it's not super obvious, and you'll have to do some shell
scripting.  See the pkg_rr man page and the example about X11 and change
it to be about build host.  Read a bunch of control files by hand to
figure out what you need to grep for.    Once you're done, send it to me
and I'll add it to the man page.

As a big hammer, you can
  pkg_admin est rebuild=YES \*
but then you have even more rebuilding to do.

yes, looks ok.

That's fine, but I don't find that it leads to using them for make
replace when starting from a clean workdir.

Not just workdirs, but binary packages too.  You cannot reuse *anything*
from netbsd-7.

So that is ok, but I don't really see why make replace with a clean
workdir used a bianry.  (Maybe I'm off here.)

If you don't know, you need to get it again and keep notes.

You really should follow CVS on the branch, so that you can update and
rebuild a package if there are security fixes.  Or even just to get the
latest fixes before you start.

You need to set aside packages for the old OS and mark any installed
package built on the old OS as rebuild=YES before you can start at all.

shlibs from the base OS changed. You cannot do a partial update with any

Start reading the control files in /var/db/pkg.  Seriously, use more and
read them.  In +BUILD_INFO, find the OS_VERSION line.
