Okay, maybe I hijacked BINCOMPAT purpose. As I said in a previous reply, my original message was about runtime compatibility, not compilation compatibility. 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.
