But you've *always* needed to rebuild *all* your ports when system
libraries got a version bump. Symbol versioning may make this less of
an issue in the future, but even then I'll be expecting to do it when I
make major version jumps.

It's in the release notes for every (I think) release. Other places
might make sense also, I guess...
