You have linux_base-6 port installed, and jdk14 require linux_base-7 or -8.
In order to complete install successfully -- you've to uninstall
linux_base-6.  But it may cause some ports stop working, so before
uninstalling -- analyze output of 'pkg_info -R linux_base-6\*' and
if nothing important appeares in the list of 'Required' ports -- proceed
and then *optionally* reinstall dependent port (if something stoped working).
