A simple ports question...

Thanks for the reply...
My ports tree is up to date -- i believe the "problem" (if you want to
call it that) is that I installed gnome 2.12 from package at marcuscom
(on a 6.0 RC1 system -- i needed 6.0 for some HW issues). I therefore
have newer versions of certain files than many of the ports in the
current tree are expecting. Does this sound like a reasonable
Your answer is the one everyone has been telling me for the last week.
And i truly appreciate the response. I keep thinking i'm asking the
question wrong :) I would understand this answer if the dependencies i
had were OLDER than what the port was looking for...but I have a NEWER
version. For example, while installing pan2 it needs glib-2.6.6. I
have glib-2.8.3. How can i properly get this port installed?
===> Installing for glib-2.6.6
===> glib-2.6.6 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/perl5.8.7 - found
===> glib-2.6.6 depends on executable: pkg-config - found
===> glib-2.6.6 depends on shared library: intl - found
===> Generating temporary packing list
===> Checking if devel/glib20 already installed
===> An older version of devel/glib20 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/glib20
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/devel/glib20.
*** Error code 1
I'm really not trying to beat a dead horse here. I have read all
relevant sections of the handbook and man pages but the obvious seems to
be escaping me. I truly appreciate the help....
