In general, you only need to recompile changed packages if you are
staying with the same version of R (to the best of my knowledge). For
changes in R, you might need to recompile everything, depending on the
size of the change in R and your OS.

Things might be slightly different if you are changing the base
packages: I wouldn't know -- I've never done so...
