Ghostscript8 portupgrade failure

I've now got a different problem when trying to portupgrade ghostscript8
and the build fails with an error: (new compiler error).

I had a problem with ghostscript the last time it need upgrading. I
think then I removed it from the system and just built the new port.
This time, I have a number of other ports that depend on it and
pkg_delete ghostscript8 won't remove it because of the dependent ports. 

If I `pkg_delete -f`  it and then rebuilt it from the ports tree will
this cause problems with my system?
