  So let's tackle this from the other end -- if foo says in its
README (or whereever) that it needs bar 1.3 or higher, would anything
break if one added a BUILDLINK_DEPENDS on bar >= 1.3?

  For source package builds, this looks begnign. For binary packages,
the dependency is on exactly the version currently installed, so there
is no harm done there either, is there?

  I'm probably overlooking something obvious?
