Just updating glibmm's buildlink3.mk is not good enough. That causes a new
error for me:
ERROR: glibmm is not installed; can't buildlink files.
It is installed.
Bumping the BUILDLINK_ABI_DEPENDS.libsigcpp also does not help.
Bumping BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.gtkmm should do it in addition to the
BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.glibmm, but that means I have to reinstall three new
packages (for no real API reason) just because one was renamed.
A third idea is to get the new buildlink3.mk file for libsigc++ to know
about the previous PKGNAME and maybe use it?
