There is disagreement among the ports committers whether such library

Either way, we should do all or none.
Well, my personal perception of this is that one should
use portupgrade to make sure that the dependencies are dealt
However, make sure you understand what this is doing
before using it: man portupgrade
IMHO, PORTREVISION bumps should be used for library updates
ONLY when there is some weird interaction that portupgrade won't
be able to handle. Example? Recent qt3 update to 3.0.5, kdebase3
and kdelibs3. portupgrade triggered compilation of kdebase3 but
kdelibs3 should be built 1st, we need to either change something
in the dependency list or do version bumps in that situation. Later
was preferred for a quick solution, the former is being pursued.
However, as you can see, this is not our standard practice.
