Specifically, you can 'make replace' on that one package. If the ABI didn't change (as in this case), everything should work. Try using ccache with a big cache. That will speed up repeated compiles. The other change is harder; if pkgsrc explicitly encoded an ABI version in a package, we could have a unsafe_depends variant that was only set on ABI changes of depending versions, and a clean mode for pkg_rr that follows that. I think some would consider that dangerous and some useful.
