   Only if there is a real dependency change.  I.e., if
there is a user-visible change that only allows packages
to compile against one version of a package or another,
but not both.

   For example, when libgnome got updated to 2.4.0 the
API was changed and older gnome2 packages would not
build against the new version of libgnome and vice
versa.  This is a clear case where dependencies need
to be updated in buildlink[23].mk
