I am guessing this doesn't matter for pkgsrc on NetBSD which don't depend
on the openssl package. But for other platforms it may be needed.
For example, if the dependent packages foo-1.2.3 links with
libcrypto.so.0.9.7 (instead of now libcrypto.so.0.9.8), then foo needs to
become foo-1.2.3nb1. (Or how we will we know the difference between two
different packages with identical version?)
Technically I suppose you're correct. But that's alot of packages to
bump for a change that only affects people who actively chose to not
use builtin openssl. I can't make this call, but if pmc wants to have
hundreds of packages bumped I will see it through. I'll make a survey
of exactly how many packages we're talking about. I would guess at least
500, maybe more.
Speaking on behalf of pkgsrc-pmc, please do the PKGREVISION bumps for
the reasons outlined by Jeremy above.
