Re: confusion regarding .include vs DEPENDS

When reading chapter 10 of the pkgsrc doco, I am confused about including
the buildlink3 file vs having DEPENDS in the makefile. The doco seems to
indicate a preference to using buildlink3 files, but how do you specify a
minimum version for the dependency that way? I don't want to force
dependencies to be updated when it's not necessary.
You want to include a dependency's buildlink3.mk files *only* if the
package links against libraries provided by the dependency. Otherwise,
See Juan's reply for how to set the version for a buildlink3.mk file.
