I was using IGNORE_RECOMMENDED=YES, but now turned off for a while. I
didn't go back to check which systems I used it on and when I built
packages, so I probably have some confused (broken) packages.

I reverted the two BUILDLINK_RECOMMENDED changes I made. (I didn't revert
where I bumped PKGREVISION because too late now.)

As for the original posting, it would be good to have some way to tell the
developer that the SONAMEs changed (since PLISTs don't record anymore).

Maybe on a "deinstall" we could save the +BUILD_INFO PROVIDES=
information. And then on an install completion output a diff of the new

By the way, who wants to code support in pkg_add and pkg_delete to honor
the already recorded PROVIDES= and REQUIRES= fields?
