My guess is that the update to -0.98 came with the image-upgrade that I ran
from the command-line, or from syncing against the repository.  I'm not
completely certain about that, but I also have everything else just the way
you describe yours.  They're the only things I can think of.  The Package
Manager spent around 16 hours thinking about upgrading the system, so I
closed it, went to the command line, and used the pkg command to do the
system upgrade.  After that, the Package Manager has been fine.

I'm not completely certain - when you look in Package Manager, you can see a
list of files that come with a package.  Alternatively, the various pkg
command-line tools might give you similar information that you're looking
for.  xrender.pc was not listed in xorg-headers, but xrandr was, so I
thought maybe it was a misspelling, installed xorg-headers, and now I have
both xrandr.pc and xrender.pc installed.  It was the only difference.  I
even installed GNU findutils so that I could be sure there was no xrender.pc
installed before installing xorg-headers.  So my only guess is that either
the information in Package Manager is wrong, or some hidden dependency
pulled it in.
