But Dan doesn't feel too strongly either way here ;)

You will note that I didn't change PKGTOOLS_REQD so its not like
I've forced any sort of update here.  I could be persuaded either way.
Now that I think about it, since sources live here, they could be
considered like patches are when deciding on PKGREVISION bumps for
other pkgs.  So if a changes doesn't change working
platforms and it goes from no-compile to working on some other platform
I suppose you don't need a bump because no one should have a broken
installed pkg_install.  Clearly if you went from "compiles
but doesn't work" to "compiles but does work" you'd want the bump.

If someone from pkgsrc-pmc wants to make an executive decision
I'll either revert the bump if thats decided or leave it be.

If anyone needs me, I'll be washing my hands over and over.  I
used AIX and feel dirty.
