Do people not even check to see if their updates break the builds that
depend on it?

Open letter to all maintainers: before you submit an update, look
up your build using the reverse dependency search on the "Advanced
Search" page here: https://slackbuilds.org/advsearch.php

For leptonica, this shows 2 builds: jbi2genc and tesseract. These
are exactly the ones that got broken by the update...

*Test* the dependees with your updated build before submitting it.
If it breaks something, the *least* you can do is notify the
maintainers of the builds you're about to break. Even better if you
fix the breakage in their builds and *send them patches*.
