On a (somewhat) related note - if you determine for instance that
XFree86 is dependent on zlib I understand it would be just plain stupid
to remove the zlib library. But what about upgrading them (we'll assume
it's just a minor version revision)? I would assume that everything
would be hunky dory as the two versions should be compatible (and in
this perfect world I've read the README/Changelog and no obvious
incompatibilities are listed). So is my assumption correct?
