[crux-devel] Adding a "recompile" meta field to Pkgfiles

That is derivative information, in other words, it can be obtained without adding a new meta field. 
Well-made ports have the packages that they depend on, so if you update a package, and the ABI changed, then recompile all the packages that depend on it.

 Hi Leo,

first, thanks for your ideas and your time.

About recompile meta:

- To note about rebuild issues we have notification emails and also the 
README file in each port

About xfce:

- I am not opposed to having more contributors in XFCE, it would be 
helpful to me, but in which target(s)? do you have a patch for anything? 
or special interest on a port or ports?

- Anyways, to help, IMHO it would be best if I know your previous work. 
And you should also follow the rules of contrib [*]
"Maintain an httpup repository for a while (maybe 2-6 month) to get used 
to packaging, following upstream sources etc."

Best regards,

- sepen
