I had never head of it before (until package builds started failing).

I use pkg_comp, which defaults PKG_DEVELOPER set - the effect is that
(almost) all pkg_comp users now need this package installed. Something
needs to automate that (much the way the requirement for digest is automated)
whenever PKG_DEVELOPER is set. Simply assuming that packages will
be installed is not the right way.
