this is fine if the other ports are controlled by the same maintainer.
But if they are maintained by someone else you have to inform him and so
creating a lot of work just so you can get your local version rebuild.

This happened currently with libnotify and some XFCE builds. They
stopped working because they needed a rebuild. Without that rebuild the
Computer was not usable. So i had to do the same 3 rebuilds on all of my
computers witch was very anoying.

If they where defined in the Pkgfile the rebuild would have been
triggered automaticly and everything would have been fine.
