Yeah but I don't know how to figure out which those are, short of installing and checking each one.

It's the same conundrum I find myself in when ImageMagick's library version number changes. How to find which ports link with the magick libraries (which need a revbump) and those that just run the ImageMagick programs (which don't)?

Don't get me started on the ImageMagick developers changing the library version number between 6.8.0-7 and 6.8.0-8.

If it's possible, I should probably make libmagick a separate subport, then update all ports that use the library to depend on that.
