Would my guess be correct that this:

xorg-imake-6.8.2nb2: version mismatch - xorg-imake-6.8.2nb1

in combination with make update will deinstall all X dependent packages and
do a full recompilation?

If so, it seems a bit wasteful.  On the other hand I can understand it if it
enables or disables some features which dependent packages are (not)
expecting and thus are not picked up.
