I suggest the following, every binary package should depend _at_least_
on the version of the other one required, at the time of build.  So, if 
is opencdk-0.5.4, which requires libgcrypt-any-version, and we build a 
package, the binary package should NOT depend on libgcrytp-any-version, 
libgcrypt-1.2.0, which was present at the time of making opencdk.

Otherwise, we can endlessly wonder which package will be backward 
which one will be not, and while we are wondering, the next version is 
completely different.  :)

As far as I remember, only libspectrum depends on libgcrypt.  Fuse and 
depend on libspectrum, so if you want to play with BUILDLINK_DEPENDS...

Aaargh, we spend too much time on this, while new packages and PRs are 
waiting. :)

Kind regards,
