FreeBSD hangs onto MD5 checksums for all port/package installed files
and only removes files where the MD5 checksum matches.
Unfortunately this isn't a complete solution, if you install two
copies of the same package and the files didn't change extra stuff
can get deleted...
Gems could, check if the installed file is in more than one manifest.
