This one of two cases I know of that portmaster is trying to be smarter
then it should.
It notices a conflict and tries to redirect the dependency to the
conflicting port. In many cases this is the correct thing to do, but not
in this case, because one of the ports depends on the other. Deleting
both p5-libwww-5.837 and p5-Net-HTTP-* and then re-running portmaster
should fix things for you.

(The other case is detecting BROKEN and failing prematurely so that
TRYBROKEN can't be used. It should instead inspect IGNORE to be non empty.)
