1 When I try to update @system after --sync-ing, I get a conflict on
2 /readline/.
4 /Bash/ wants /readline/ 8.0 but the profile specifies /readline/ 7.0 and
5 lots of other packages are linked against 7.0.  Just rebuilding those
6 packages probably won't help, because they don't know about /readline/ 8.0.
8 Would the right thing, the easiest thing, be to define my own profile
9 17.1.1 or something, where I specify /readline/ 8.0 in the profile?
