Actually, Transmission 2.2x requires libevent2 now.

I am not sure what kind of problem that you are seeing? Can you post
the error? The libevent and libevent2 aren't conflict as they both
have complete different pkg-plist and can be installed as in parallel,
so you don't need to do the 'port* -o devel/libevent2 devel/libevent'.
