ghostscript9 installed; OK for ghostscript8 dependency?

I had ghostscript8 installed, but after an ordinary upgrade (I think, I mean,
I don't recall doing anything unusual), I ended up with ghostscript9. After
that, portmaster complained that ghostscript8 was a dependency for a couple of
the other installed ports:
$ portmaster --check-depends
===>>> Checking mediawiki-1.16.1
===>>> print/ghostscript8-nox11 is listed as a dependency
===>>> but there is no installed version
The same dependency is listed for pecl-imagick.
I went ahead and answered 'y' to the question of whether to delete the
dependency, but now I'm wondering if that was the wrong thing to do.
