Problems with ".if HAVE_GNOME" tests because of installation order

I haven't digged into this, it may be a portupgrade problem, not a
problem of the ports collection.
PR 61840 describes a scenario which seems to be a general problem with
conditional gnome dependencies.
Without having gnome installed install a port (A) which depends upon
gnome only if it is installed. Now install gnome and after that a port
which depends on A, but not on gnome.
pkgdb -F will now report an error if port A sucks in some more
dependencies in the gnome case, e.g. cdrdao checks for gnomelibs and
adds gtk-- and gnome-- if gnomelibs is installed. If you install cdrdao,
gnomelibs and then k3b, pkgdb -F will report a missing dependency
(gnome--) for k3b (see PR 61840).
Any ideas/thoughts about this problem?
I will be available to get hired in April 2004.
