Your installed ports are out of date, you need to update all of them first  
before you install any of ports. That is #1 rule. You have  
gstreamer-0.10.8 (see below) and we have gstreamer-0.10.11. You need to  
use either portupgrade or portmaster to do the work. Also, don't forget to  
check in /usr/ports/UPDATING while you are at it.
