Did you run 'pkgdb -Ff'? It should move from gst-plugins-artsd to  
gst-plugins-artsd80 for you, and the pkgdb should be show you a message of  
"Not part of gstreamer 0.10 yet" (from ports/MOVED). Therefore, I don't  
think it needs to be add in the UPDATING.

Fixed, thanks for report! Missed to remove a patch when the merge went in.

I don't know much about avahi, so I will let someone to answer it.
