Hi,

I wrote a patch for prt-get that provides a new feature: 'depupdate'.
The purpose of this feature is to solve the problem of new deps in the 
update of a port.
An example of this could be a commit to gst-plugins-bad(*), which 
introduces new dependencies, so in
the case you only use the 'update' command, then you'll have an error 
due to new deps.

Bassically, 'depupdate' does the same like 'depinst' but with some 
differences:

[depinst foo]
   1. get dependencies of foo, and install missing ones
   2. install foo

[depupdate foo]
   1. get dependencies of foo, and install missing ones
   2. update foo

What to you think about?

Regards,
