Unfortunately, this is a problem generated specifically by the GNOME
upgrade. New dependencies were introduced in the new version of Gedit2.
portupgrade -rR only updates the libraries that were previously depended
upon for Gedit2. portupgrade isn't currently smart enough to check for
That's exactly what the upgrade script is there to manage. Other than
upgrading stuff in a couple runs and having failures each time, it lets
you do it all in one shot.
I don't know of any better way to handle the upgrade. This will surely
be a problem in future releases too, so if you know of any way to make
the process run smoother, please do let us know.
