cvs commit: ports/graphics/netpbm Makefile (fwd)

Can someone please explain to me why fixing a plist necessitates bumping
portrevision? If I already have the port installed, the plist is already
broken. There is nothing about this fix that makes me want to reinstall
the port.

IMO, people bump portrevision WAY WAY too often, causing a lot of wasted
time for people needlessly updating ports that work exactly the same
after the upgrade.
