Thanks for the advice, I decided to go down the portupgrade route in 
any event. However one of the ImageMagick- dependencies is 
XFree86-libraries-4.2.0_1 and when it gets to this point in the 
portupgrade it keeps coming back with the error

make: don't know how to make includes. Stop
*** Error code 2

any ideas of how to cure this would be much appreciated as i have hit a 
brick wall

Thanks Tom
