Well, until now I didn't thought at the build compatibility.
My concern was only the runtime compatibility.

Lets suppose we use & as 'binding' dependency marker. What sense would
DEPEND="&net-dialup/ppp" have in a context of an ebuild. It certainly
don't specify the necessity of package rebuild whenever net-dialup/ppp
version is changed.
Unless you save the specific compatibility version of the net-dialup/ppp
used by net-dialup/pptpd for building the package, I don't see how can
it help me.
Judging after /var/db/pkg content, I have no such information.
