    Hello,
    You may want to try portupgrade to bring everything up to date.
    Here is a link to a tutorial:

    Thanks for the tip. I wasn't aware that pkg_add -r was more or less tied
    strictly to the release version. I followed your advice and deleted all
    the older packages, installed portupgrade, updated the ports tree, and
    reinstalled everything I needed.

    Things seem to be okay now.

    Well, the specific problem I had was that after doign a fresh install, I
    installed some packages with pkg_add. Then I updated ports, and
    installed some more stuff. And then when I went back to use pkg_add, it
    complained about some program need library v1.4 but v1.6 was installed
    on the system (because it had been installed by ports).

    thanks,
    Thomas

    Cool, it seems like a fairly well written and mostly up to date site.
    I'm surprised I hadn't stumbled onto it before. Thanks for the tip.
