Should skip dependent scm builds if scm hasn't changed (in certain circumstances)

Description

If you've enabled rebuilding -scm dependents, and an -scm package is not a target, and it doesn't have any new revisions in the repository (or the exheres specifies a fixed revision), and none of its options or dependencies have changed, it should be skipped. Or at least, there should be a flag to enable skipping it.

This one requires a fairly hefty amount of support from the ebuilds or exhereses... But yes, it's been on the todo list for quite a while.
