It is complex to do that (if you want to do it the right way), because
you need to parse components and dependencies before selecting a
version. The current code is wrong since it will only reject components
without dependency type specifications (and if there were dependencies
then it will also ignore them).

I think people should select the versions that actually work with the
port, that's why the version specification string is so flexible.

Also, if versions with invalid components are removed then the reported
error if a user writes USE_WX=2.4 and WX_COMPS=svg would be "selected a
null or invalid WxWidgets version" instead of "selected a WxWidgets
component (${_WX_COMP}) which is not available for the selected version

It defines IGNORE _and_ adds the broken dependency line. I can add a
"&& !defined(IGNORE)" before adding the wrong component to the list,
but I thought IGNORE was checked when building INDEX.

Sorry, I re-wrote it many times and forgot this:

+_WX_VER_INSTALLED:=		${_HAVE_WX:Mwx-*:S/wx-//}
