Porting a Python 2.5 dependent software.

I'm trying to port a package on FreeBSD. The package depends on Python
v.2.5 (which is not default on FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE), and some python
modules. Now, the problem is that dependent python modules are already
installed in Python v2.4 PYTHON_SITELIBDIR directory. So when I
execute "install" target for my port, "install" target of python
modules (dependencies) are also invoked, and since they're already
installed (but in a different PYTHON_SITELIBDIR), I get following
-- begin error --
===> Installing for py25-numeric-24.2
===> py25-numeric-24.2 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/python2.5 - found
===> Generating temporary packing list
===> Checking if math/py-numeric already installed
===> An older version of math/py-numeric is already installed (py24-numeric-24.2)
You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
If you really wish to overwrite the old port of math/py-numeric
without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
in your environment or the "make install" command line.
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/ports/math/py-numeric.
-- end error --
I've already set USE_PYTHON=2.5+ in my port's Makefile.
Any ideas what should I do here ? Shall I wait for Python 2.5 to
become default for FreeBSD.
BtW, I'm trying to port Redhat Online Desktop to FreeBSD.
Thanks in advance,
