I build port packages using portupgrade on 2 machines. The 1st had no 
problem but the 2nd wouldn't deinstall properly from portupgrade. It 
did, however, tell you to cd in to .../expat2 and do a make deinstall, 
and make reinstall. That worked just fine. 

In addition, you need to portupgrade -R expat to build ports such as 
gettext and apache that now depend on expat:5.
