Per what I see, shlib version of libsilcclient was bumped during
devel/silc-toolkit update.  Since net-im/libpurple explicitly depends on
named library, PORTREVISION bump is in order, since API could have
changed (thus the shlib version bump).  If silc-toolkit update was
merely a bugfix one, and shlib version retained, PORTREVISION should be
left intact.
