BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS for libpurple and pidgin
I have installed: pidgin-2.3.1 and libpurple-2.3.1.
I went to install chat/pidgin-otr, but it tried to bring in new versions
of pidgin and libpurple. So I stopped it and set
BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.libpurple and BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.pidgin so 2.3.1
version would be okay.
It built and installed fine. And as far as I can tell, it works fine. And
I didn't have to restart pidgin -- just enabled plugin.
Is the API jump really required? Is the ABI jump really required?
(ABI_DEPENDS tracks API_DEPENDS when not set.) For me it appears neither
Also, the PKGREVISION on chat/pidgin-otr was never increased related to
the ABI changes of its dependencies, so I am guessing this was missed. But
since as far as I know it is not needed, that is good.
Okay to lower the BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.libpurple and
BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.pidgin so 2.3.1 version would be okay?
