They were deleted along with automake-2.57. If you use kde, force 
portupgrade kde and kdevelop and then delete the three of them. If you 
delete them first, you will have a broken dependancy and will be told 
to run pkgdb -F. It is a PITA at that point :).

You could also pkg_delete automake-2.57. It won't do the delete but you 
will be able to see what needs to be forced first.
