Okay, maybe I hijacked BINCOMPAT purpose. As I said in a previous reply,
my original message was about runtime compatibility, not compilation
I want to be able to save in a package metadata that it was build using
some version (as in compatibility version, not necessarily PV) of
another package and I want emerge to automatically rebuild my package
whenever this version is changed.
