The same applies to a 6.2-STABLE before x.org-7 update, no difference there.
It's not about port dependencies, it's about base-system dependencies. It
doesn't happen often that within a minor release update a library gets a
version bump, but binary incompatibilities may still occur.
For -RELEASE you are expected to upgrade from source. Typical behavior being
that ports only get upgraded when portaudit reports them unsafe.
