Even if there were, I think it's quite obvious that port which has been
removed from the ports tree should be deinstalled from user's system,
isn't it? BTW, portupgrade notes when there are such kind of ports in
I think the proper solution is deinstalling obsolete port (i.e. gnutls-devel
in our case) from the system, but not CONFLICTing with dead ports' ghosts.
And Porters Handbook doesn't say we should CONFLICT with nonexistent ports.
Am I missing something?
