I've got a machine that I cvup'd lst night, and I'm having a problem
running portupgrade on it. It's got Gnome2, and also some Gnome 1.4
librarties required by (for example) ogle.

I'm getting an error message like this:

pkg_delete: /var/db/pkg/gnomesession-2.2.2_1/+CONTENTS: No such file or directory

** Fix the installation problem and try again.
[Updating the pkgdb <format:bdb1_btree> in /var/db/pkg ... - 331 packages found (-0 +1) . done]

And then things star to fall apart. I've run portsdb -Fu, in an atempt to
fix this, but that has bot resolved the problem.

Can anyone help me diagnos and resolve this problem?
