Just noticing that when i have py23-mx-base-2.0.4 installed and I try to 
install py21-mx-base-2.0.4 (using PYTHON_VERSION=python2.1 make),
i get the error:

  An older version of lang/py-mx-base is already installed
  (py23-mx-base-2.0.4)You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this
  port again by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.

I get around it with a FORCE_PKG_REGISTER ... but it seems to me maybe the isn't doing all the magic it should be...
