If a binary on our packages server is mislinked (i.e. linked with a previous version of a dependency’s library) such that rev-upgrade decides to rebuild it, we should revbump to fix the binary package.

However, I looked at one of the binary packages (tiff-4.0.3_2.darwin_10.x86_64.tbz2) and did not see any obvious mislinking. Do you know why rev-upgrade decided to rebuild tiff on your system?

We do need to revbump tiff anyway in the process of fixing this issue:


Jeremy, the last note in the ticket from awhile ago said you were looking into it?
