P.S.: what I use in bsd.hf-pkg.mnk is:

                nnewfiles=`find . -type f -newer "${REF}" -print  | grep -v ${WRKDIR} | wc -l` ; \
                if [ $$nnewfiles -gt 0 ]; then \
                        ${ECHO_MSG} >&2 ">> Package ${PKGNAME} modified since last 'make package', re-packaging..." ; \

    I use the binary package as REF to see if the package was modified
    since then... something similar may work here.
