So, the policy is that whenever _any_ installed file changes then bump
the revision?

In this case the installed file could not have worked correctly as it
defined LD=/usr/pkg/bin/ld.  Any package that depended on this file
would fail as soon as it tried to execute ${LD}.  My thought was that
bumping the revision would lead to unnecessary rebuilds, until some
package depends on actually using the value of ${LD}.

Perhaps that logic is not correct and the stricter logic should
prevail.  Is there any case when an installed file changes that the
revision should _not_ be bumped?

Thanks for the clarification.
