   20090616:
           Native Xorg was upgraded.  Builds will need a clean objdir for
           src/external/mit/xorg.  Upgrading a system from sets will not
           work properly yet as the /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc
           subdirectory has been changed into a file, and this needs to
           be manually "rm -r"'ed before installing xbase.tgz.
   
   20090501:
           Several new functions were added to string.h/libc, and this
           can cause autoconf problems during the tool build for people
           who fail to clean out their tools objects properly. If you
           note messages about stpcpy, stpncpy or strnlen accompanying a
           failure during the tool build, clean out all your tools
           objects and start again.
   
   20090325:
           The i386 port was switched to i486 default toolchain.  This requires
           cleaning your src/tools directory and $TOOLDIR and rebuilding them.
   
   20090126:
           The __posix_fadvise50 system call changed assembly stub type. You need to
           'rm -f __posix_fadvise50.*' in the libc build directory to avoid using
           the old assembly stub.
   
   20090202:
           pkg_install now depends on the pkgdb cache for automatic conflict
           detection.  It is recommented to rebuild the cache with
           ``pkg_admin rebuild''.

              This is needed even in the MODULAR kernel because there is
              conditionally compiled code in rtsock.c.

            you'll need to bump them and rebuild them.             rebuild the required packages to update their shared libraries.
              Any package you rebuild will require rebuilding all the packages
              that depend on it.

            a heuristic for utmp. You are better off removing the             lastlogx(5)) have been versioned, and there is a heuristic
            old files after upgrading.             for utmp. You are better off removing the old files after
              upgrading.  The automated clearing of /var/run during
              boot, and the automated rotating of files in /var/log by
              newsyslog(8), may mean that you do not have to remove the
              files manually.
           7. The optional accounting file (/var/account/acct, see
              accton(8)) has not been versioned, and will need to be
              removed.  The automatic rotation of the accounting file by
              /etc/daily limits the bad consequences of failure to remove
              the file.
           8. Application software that writes time_t to binary files on
              disk will break or need attention. Most notably: if you are
              using PostgreSQL < 8.4, you need to dump your databases,
              rebuild PostgreSQL with the new time_t, then restore.
