Could be they just haven't built it yet.  And building against 4.10
would only mean that people running 4.9 or earlier may have problems
running it.  Binaries built on a newer system aren't guaranteed to run
on an older one, but you can always run older binaries on a newer
system (that's part of what the -stable branch name implies).  The only
time you would want to bump your build system is if a newer version had
a significant feature you wanted to take advantage of.
