I guess the is slightly broken, it has:
BUILDLINK_DEPENDS.xpm?=         xpm-3.4k
but probably should have
BUILDLINK_DEPENDS.xpm?=         xpm>=3.4k
except that I'm not sure that's gonna work, because of the non-Deweyness
of the number.
Could you give it a try?
Otherwise we'll have to change it to
BUILDLINK_DEPENDS.xpm?=         xpm-3.4knb1
and then everyone with an old xpm library would have to rebuild all on the
next update...
