Hm, now that I think of it, this would make the outcome of bulk builds
depend on the order of building, probably not what we want in pkgsrc.  

How do they handle this problem in FreeBSD?  (they use this kind of
conditional dependencies all over the place)  Or does a bulk build start
from scratch again for every package?
