IMO the good practice is to rebuild all tde packages after rebuilding
tdelibs from master. There is no warranty that binaries build against
older versions will continue to work fine with new one, so in theory
you may find any non rebuild app broken.

Historically for trinity the backward compatibility is not well
maintained in general and especially because of API rebranding work
which is still may be considered half-done;
But nowadays due to changes are done quite slow, you are quite safer
and will likely find that everything working rebuilding over 1-2
mounths, but still remember, that it's still no warranty.
