AFFECTS: users of databases/db6
AUTHOR: [email protected]

Oracle Berkeley DB 6 has been upgraded to version 6.1.19. Since the
previous 6.0 version, the log file format has changed in 6.1.
Depending on applications used, you may need to take action BEFORE you
upgrade. For details, please see the online upgrade manual at
<http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17076_04/html/upgrading/upgrade_process.html>
<http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17076_04/html/installation/upgrade_61_toc.html>

Note: if you've got Apache installed and depending on db6, you may
need to upgrade it separately BEFORE upgrading other ports.

Note: some GNOME-related ports, for instance, evolution-data-server,
cannot be built if their older version is installed because they run
their own executables at build-time and prefer libraries from
$LOCALPATH over freshly-built ones. For these ports, deinstall
them with pkg_delete -f or pkg delete -f before trying to upgrade them.

After that, you must rebuild all applications that link to db6 because
the shared library name has changed with the upgrade. To do that:

If you use portmaster:
portmaster -w -r db6-
If you use portupgrade:
portupgrade -fr databases/db6
