Well, ABI-compatibility is irrelevant for things like this, which
you (or pkgsrc build-folks) build from source anyway. In theory,
users may have binaries they don't have the source to, and those
are the problem. I don't think I've heard of such binaries, though,
and don't sympathize with them anyway.
