sysutils/bpm fails to notice that portupgrade is already installed

Perhaps this line:

RUN_DEPENDS=    portupgrade:${PORTSDIR}/sysutils/portupgrade

needs to be:

RUN_DEPENDS=    ${LOCALBASE}/sbin/portsdb:${PORTSDIR}/sysutils/portupgrade

Solution taken from sysutils/barry.

FWIW, sysutils/pkg_cutleaves uses

RUN_DEPENDS=    ${LOCALBASE}/sbin/pkg_deinstall:${PORTSDIR}/sysutils/portupgrade

      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 sysutils/portupgrade
      without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
      in your environment or the "make install" command line.
