So while ftp was needed, a new ftp doesn't mean that checkperms should be rebuilt. digest, on the other hand, could have a bug where checksums are wrong (obviously highly highly unlikely) and if it did and had a new version, it would be sane to want to rebuild packages that depended on it. So perhaps ftp should not be recorded in pkg_info -N digest should have CHECKPERMS_SKIP But, the current state isn't bothering me, since my systems are cycle-free.
