The use of the make .warning trick is deprecated in the ports tree 
precisely because it leads to confusion. In this case the "warning" 
was telling you that you had options selected which conflicted, and 
the proper course of action for portupgrade was indeed to bail.

Continuing to focus on the semantics isn't really productive.
