That is the purpose of "make update" -- "all depending packages first get
de-installed, then current versions of the corresponding packages get
compiled and installed."
So don't use "make update". As for me, if it does have a dependent, I use
"make replace" -- read the pkgsrc guide "Be careful when using this
Also so I don't have to frequently rebuild dependencies, I use
USE_ABI_DEPENDS=NO on several systems. Also see the pkgsrc guide about
that as you need to be knowledgable and careful with it.
