Run "pkgdb -F" and let it depend upon the 10.0.2_1 realplayer.

I don't know if the packaging list changed between 10.0.2 and 10.0.4. If
there's no change, you could do the same with the realplayer port.

You could add "@origin multimedia/linux-realplayer" to
/var/db/pkg/linux-realplayer-10.0.2_1/+CONTENTS and try again with
portupgrade. You could also remove all files specified in +CONTENTS and
proceed like you did with linux-gtk2.
