Previously in the OI151 gcc-3 package was compatible with live images,
making it possible to run:
pkg install -q --accept --deny-new-be gcc-3
This is very necessary for deployment systems like Chef that are going
to install a number of packages (creating a new image mid-stream
requiring a reboot, means subsequent changes made by Chef in the same
run don't show up in the new image). Suddenly however, it appears that
the gcc-3 package no longer is compatible with a live image. My
question is why was this change made?
