I haven't investigated that. It's just that they are listed in:
as class 5:
So, there are really five classes of packages:
1) already recompiled for 1.5.0
3) binary, but not for new use (e.g. could be recompiled, but why?)
4) empty compatibility packages (newlib-man, texmf?)
5) need to be recompiled 1.5.0
So I figured that a package that needs to be recompiled, would export
new symbols. But maybe class 5 should be split:
5a: need to be recompiled, but does not export new 64 bit types
(no need to wait for this)
5b: need to be recompiled, exports 64 bit types. packages with
requires: should wait for this to be recompiled
I've been very busy off late, and only learned about 1.5 a few days ago.
