Yes looks correct. Thanks!

btw. since the resulting binary change (new dependency) we should
increase the pkgrel. If a user forexample got hit by this "bug", and we
fix it, then he will not get the fix via 'apk add -u' til we have
changend the pkgrel.

So ingeneral, if the binary package change in any way (new configure
options, dependencies etc) then we should increase the pkgrel. If the
change only affects the buildtime (e.g adding a missing makedepends)
then we dont need to change it.
