I think reducing build time is a completely different problem. There is
no any reason to rebuild all dependent packages recursively if package
producing pdf or ps were changed unless explicit >=x.y.z is specified in
BUILD_DEPENDS. Recursive rebuild is only required for library
dependencies when API or ABI versions bumped.
