QT4 fails to see LIB_DEPENDS?

I just installed QT4 from ports (devel/qt4, misc/qt4-doc,
misc/qt4-qtdemo).  The installation went fine, except for one thing:

if port A has installed a library libFoo.so, and another port B depends
on port A, like LIB_DEPENDS=Foo:${PORTSDIR}/port/a, it always reinstalls
 port A, nomatter if it is already installed.  Setting
FORCE_PKG_REGISTER is one way to 'fix' this...

Could this be caused by the fact that the Foo library starts its name
with an uppercase letter?
