yes, and as a rule of thumb, or rule of survival:

never 'makeupdate' a package that is "depended upon" by more than one
package, another package of large size or importance, or a package with
recursive upward dependencies. 

always 'make build' the updatable package, then 'pkg_delete -vf' the
older version, then 'make install clean' the new version.
