And obache thinks I should adjust ABI_DEPENDS and revbump(1).
I consulted with Joerg after being poked about that, he said
it was at most a API bump.  I infered from this conversation
that pkgsrc didn't have a good way to handle this situation.

As no part of the 0.9 ABI/API changed in 0.10, I'm hesitant
to require 0.10 for either.

Is there perhaps a way to conditionally include the xcb
buildlinks based on the installed s-n version?

I take responsibility for breaking this. However, I'm
only going to fix it if I know I won't get complaints
about the fix.
