lang/gcc46 dependency loop on lang/gcc

It seems that if lang/gcc46 is installed, and then you attempt to update
it, lang/gcc shows up in the output of build-depends-list,
run-depends-list, or perhaps both. If lang/gcc46 is not installed
already, this doesn't happen.

This would seem to be an error in the logic, or perhaps an
error in one of the ports' Makefiles, not sure yet. Any chance you could
look into this?
