I don't know that this is an appropriate "feature" anyway, but that said:

Wouldn't it still be proper procdedure to bump PKGREVISION of dependencies
if there is a mandatory update of libmilter? It may only be a build time
dependency, but it's still an API and library that has changed.
I don't see how that's any different from a runtime dependency, and should
cover the "automatic rebuild" desire.
