import a bunch of pkgsrc articles from the old pkgsrc.se wiki

    1: A good method of knowing when you have out of date packages is to use the utility lintpkgsrc, which can be [[Installing a package with pkgsrc]] installed from pkgtools/lintpkgsrc. Once it is installed use it to check installed packages for newer available versions:
    2: 
    3:     lintpkgsrc -i
    4:     Scan Makefiles: ................
    5:     Version mismatch: 'dummy' 5.1 vs 5.2
    6:     Version mismatch: 'other_package' 2.5a vs 2.5b
    7: 
    8: The results are simple: outdated-package-name currently-installed-version -vs- currently-supported-version
    9: See also
   10: 
   11: [[pkg_chk]]
