BUILDLINK_DEPMETHOD.<pkg> is documented and works as expected.  The
problem is that BUILDLINK_DEPMETHOD.<pkg>=full changes DEPENDS variable
but not BUILD_DEPENDS (BUILDLINK_DEPMETHOD.<pkg>=build works fine). I
meant that if it changed both DEPENDS and BUILD_DEPENDS it'd be easier
to optimize bulk builds (recursive rebuild due to change in non-library
