If you really, really want to be sure, 'pkg_rolling-replace -rsuv', with a
/usr/pkgsrc that contains a quarterly release.  This will rebuild
everything that can be upgraded, and everything that could possibly depend
on those packages.

It'll take a long time, and there may be a few packages you have to
manually delete and reinstall if they've moved (i.e. are now under a
different name.)  However, this should clear up any lingering library
