I'm not sure what you mean.  Assume you have a package with 


and you run makepkg.

1) Do you mean it says "dependency not satisfied: foo>2.0"?

If so, this has been fixed in CVS.

2) Do you mean that makepkg succeeds even if you only have foo 1.0 installed? 

If so, this is news to me - I'll have to test it when I get home, to verify
your result ;)
