I remember a similar discussion on the this list around the time 13.37 was
being prepared. The consensus was that build numbers should not be
arbitrarily bumped because a dependency has been upgraded. They represent
the version number of the SlackBuild itself, they are not a mechanism for
dependency tracking.
