yes.  Lets call this #1

#1 covers this.

#1 covers this, this is the OPTIONS case (default vs not)

#1 covers this

#1 covers this.

#1 covers this.  This is in the library port itself.  The dependencies
figure this out.

#1 covers this.  (default vs not default OPTIONS). If you count the end

not really relevant.

   * just fixing .ifdef/NOPORT(DOCS|EXAMPLES))
sure is relevant see above

   * if port was broken on any arch. (rebuilding on existing arch is a
     noop, and fixed arch didn't package anyway)

removing IGNORE,BROKEN do not require this b/c there was previously no

   * Fixing typo's in pkg-message, Comment
Yes, the package changes, but no the functionality doesn't, so this is

   * Updating port maintainer (new one or resetting port maintainer)

   * just petting portlint (<space> after name to <tab>), re-order sections


In short what you change is irrelevant. Does the resultant package
change. Yes or No.  The only question you need to answer is do we bump
if the resultant package changes for configs other than default.
