Annoying ports problem

I have run into an annoying problem several times when upgrading ports.
Say, if i want to upgrade gstreamer-plugins, i do:
# cd /usr/ports/multimedia/gstreamer-plugins
This pulls in some dependencies, for example gnomevfs2. gnnomevfs2 will
compile fine, but then stops because it wants to install gnomevfs2
instead of reinstalling it:
===> An older version of devel/gnomevfs2 is already installed
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 devel/gnomevfs2
without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
in your environment or the "make install" command line.
*** Error code 1
Since i have run into this several times, i must be missing something
substantial. What is it?
