Mozilla dying in 2.8 upgrade

Yesterday, having successfully upgraded my system to 5.3-STABLE, I
set the 2.8 upgrade running, watched it for a few hours, and then
left my office. It was with great sorrow that I saw this morning
that it had made it through 66 of 69 packages, but died on 
Mozilla, with this error:


if [ ! -L /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/ ]; then  for jpi in /usr/local/jdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/  /usr/local/jdk1.4.1/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/  /usr/local/diablo-jdk1.3.1/jre/plugin/i386/ns600/  /usr/local/jdk1.3.1/jre/plugin/i386/ns600/; do  if [ -f ${jpi} ]; then  echo lib/browser_plugins/ >> /usr/ports/www/mozilla/work/pkg-plist ;  break;  fi;  done;  echo @dirrm lib/browser_plugins >> /usr/ports/www/mozilla/work/pkg-plist ;  fi

I haven't seen this before, and can't find anything relevant on Google. Any
suggestions for how to fix this?

And, when I'm done, can I just upgrade mozilla, mplayerplug-in, and
epiphany, and be good to go, or do I really have to run the entire again? (Things are otherwise OK, I get the 2.8 splash
screen, etc.)
