Is there some reason that items which use gmake to build shouldn't also have
a dependency on them?

I updated my system and nuked old libs (I clean it every once in a while).
Rebuilding pkgsrc stuff is relatively painless so far. Something breaks, cd
to it's srcdir and do "make update". But..the first thing that used gmake
(which was depending on an older libutil) stopped dead in it's tracks and
was very non-obvious that it was gmake that was the issue (took a ktrace to
figure out what was going on).
