better way to handle required rebuild on library bump

With due respect to the creativity of the OP, the whole conversation is 
basically moot since in almost all cases a library major version change 
requires a change to the LIB_DEPENDS line in the port anyway, so a 
PORTREVISION bump is a very tiny bit of additional work.

And I agree with b.f., without actual code to review it's hard to have 
an intelligent conversation about this.
