     - OSPF: Protocol-wide 'instance id' option added.
     - BGP: Parameters to option 'neighbor' extended.
     - BGP: Separate option 'interface' added.
     - BGP: Option 'start delay time' renamed to 'connect delay time'.

  Upgrade notes:

  For OSPF, there are deep internal changes, but user-visible changes
  are limited to log messages and minor changes in formatting of command
  output.

  For BGP, version 1.5.0 is essentially a minor release. There are two
  deprecated options ('start delay time' and 'route limit') and some
  minor formatting changes.

Log message:
Move bird6 package from pkgsrc-wip (packaged by jkjuopperi with changes by
tnn) into the Packages Collection.

        The BIRD project aims to develop a fully functional dynamic IP
        routing daemon primarily targetted on (but not limited to)
        UNIX-like systems and distributed under the GNU General Public
        License.

        - This package is for IPv6, a separate IPv4 package is available
        - Multiple routing tables
        - BGP
        - RIP
        - OSPF
        - Static routes
        - Inter-table protocol
        - Command-line interface
        - Soft reconfiguration
        - Powerful language for route filtering

Updated by myself from bird-1.3.4 to 1.3.6 (to correct a BGP protocol problem).
