How does it detect that there's been a new release?  In our case we do
want quazi-stable dependencies, in particular on the stable build.  We
don't always want to build against the latest-and-greatest because they
could introduce regressions.  c.f. the libofx crash we're seeing on

I thought we did have code that would rebuild a dependency if we upgrade
it explicitly, but perhaps not?
