You'll find life easier if you remove the old packages before updating the OS. Remember that for next time eh ? :-)
And I think you make a good point - who's to know that the old libraries will even work with the new version of the OS ? There is no definitive answer easily available anywhere. If they don't work, then why keep them ?
I just did the upgrade yesterday to 3.6 And
I think an upgrade-FAQ about if not all but just the
more important stuff like the whole perl libs or gcc older libs
will be very helpful to exist.
Upgrading /etc/ var/ dev had take me 2 hours.
I let the old libs alone had to sleep 20 hours:=).
And by the way upgrading the userland with old packages
and trying to run pkg_delete has a problem that makes pkg_delete
stop at /var/db/pkg/"pkg_name"/+CONTENTS as it seemes that +DISPLAY
now has its own @md5
I had to write a script to remove all +DISPLAY lines to get rid from the old packages.
So wats the point to remove old libs when u cant use pkg_delete to delete
ur old packages? So keep them too and build the new ones somewhere else.
Hope u will not gonna answer the last one:)
Hope I can help some day as I see there is too much work to be done
and all asking for more but do nothing.
