No, there is no such race, on regular tindy, QAT (soon to be back) or
pointyhat. You should commit this kind of updates _exactly_after_ you
did the update of the dependency. Waiting hours / days / whatever gets
you pointyhats and agry mails from users unable to run their ports
after your update of the dependency.
Please talk about this with your mentors (cc'ed).

Yes. Not the same commit, but exactly after, one commit for all
Finding affected ports:
- ports that list the lib in question in LIB_DEPENDS
- if the dependency has one of the USE_XXX, all the ports that have
that USE_XXX defined (but take a look at what that USE_XXX actually
does, there might be exceotions)
To be safe:
grep -R libsomthing /usr/ports
This is actually documented in PH. Please take some time to read it
all, even the sections that are not in your usual area of interest.
