For some packages I maintain -- claws-mail and its plug-ins -- all
plug-ins must be compiled with the base package.  However, the versions
may or may not need to match.  For example, the trayicon plug-in is at
3.0.1; that source can be compiled with either 3.0.1 or 3.0.2 of
claws-mail itself.  However, a binary that runs with claws-mail 3.0.2
must have been compiled with a 3.0.2 base system.  Is there any way to
capture this in the Makefile?  Or should I just bump the dependency and
PKGREVISION for traiyicon, even though it hasn't changed?
