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
