	I rather fear it is, I install from packages mostly (with one or
two ports carefully added in where I want changes to the defaults) and I
find I have multiple versions of all sorts of things.

	One thing I did notice was that after the quarter shifted I wound
up with some oddities like python 3.6 and 3.7 and a raft of py36 and py37
packages mostly duplicated - a little digging with pkg info revealed that
the 3.6 ones had nothing depending on them and I was able to remove them
without ill effect.
