If I try to install FreePascal (lang/fpc), it tries to install gtar.
The gtar port (archivers/gtar) claims that gtar is in the base system
and fails.

I'm not certain if this is a problem of fpc's dependency should be
updated for OSVERSIONS past 470000 or if the gtar improperly believes
it is installed in the base system.  I tend to believe the latter:
  hburch-lap# which gtar
However, that would be an unusual error to make.
$ cd /usr/ports/lang/fpc
$ make install
Since gtar did not exist on my system, I commented out the lines in
/usr/ports/archivers/gtar/Makefile that said it was in the base system
for OSVERSION >= 470000 and installed gtar.  After that, fpc installed
