Well, from the PostgreSQL site:

I looked at pkg.openindiana.org/experimental, but I notice it at
0.5.11-1.1 dated 19/112011 while I'm running /dev which is at
0.5.11- dated 13/02/2012.

I was under the impression that 'upgrading' downwards is rather
difficult so when (?) will there be a version of experimental that's
upgradeable from the latest /dev or rather when will /dev have
openssl.1.0.0 is the better question.

On the other hand, perhaps going back to SourceForge spec-files-extra
is an option (or simply rebuilding manually). I'll check into that for
the short term...

Hopefully things will sync back up soon in OI, it's getting rather
long to the next base level...
