It's not a "major version update". They already broke ABI with the old
release but failed to bump soname to reflect this. This update "fixes"
this. Unfortunately I didn't notice this until much later. I then posted
to the mailinglist:

Unfortunately Imagemagick moves the tarballs when they do a new relese,
breaking $source. Annoying as hell but not much we can do about it
unless we mirror it.
