The suffix of shared libraries in the old package was .so.10.0.7 and is
now .so.10.0.8 in the updated package.
There is an additional header file "wand/deprecate.h".
There are differences between the header files of version 22.214.171.124
and 126.96.36.199: C++ template changes, function signatures, C++ namespace
There is also a comment from Thomas Klausner in the CVS log for
ImageMagick/Makefile from 2002:
According to the ImageMagick developers, it is uncommon for any two
libMagick.so libraries to be API compatible, and they don't want to
handle proper ELF versioning, but have the "real" version number in
the library. To spare us the pkgsrc maintenance nightmare, follow their
example. Bump PKGREVISION.
