Question about ports....

I have a script that does

portsnap fetch update
pkg_version -vIL=

Lately I've seen the listing below

PySolFC-1.1                    !   Comparison failed
wine-1.1.16,1                  <   needs updating (index has 1.1.17,1)

My first question is: What is wrong when Comparison fails?

Second question is when I try to build wine it'll fail saying that port 
is marked IGNORE.


Port directory: /usr/ports/emulators/wine
         ===>>> This port is marked IGNORE
         ===>>> builds, but fails upon startup

         ===>>> If you are sure you can build it, remove the
                IGNORE line in the Makefile and try again.

If the port is marked IGNORE why is it listed as a new version. 
Logically I would think that a port marked IGNORE should not be listed 
as having a new version.

Thanks for you input
