Another impasse: conflict between poppler-glib and (nonexistent?) poppler-gtk

In my many-times-interrupted attempt to upgrade all ports that depend on png, I hit another snag: poppler-glib allegedly trying to install files to the same place as poppler-gtk.

I find no poppler-gtk in the ports tree but find it in /var/db/pkg ; find poppler-glib in ports tree but not /var/db/pkg .

Here is the section of the log that shows the snag:

/sbin/ldconfig -m /usr/local/lib
===>   Registering installation for poppler-glib-0.18.4_2
Installing poppler-glib-0.18.4_2...pkg: poppler-glib-0.18.4_2 conflicts with pop
pler-gtk-0.16.7 (installs files into the same place).  Problematic file: /usr/lo
*** [fake-pkg] Error code 70

Stop in /BETA1/usr/ports/graphics/poppler-glib.

Now running ls -d /BETA1/usr/ports/*/poppler* shows


Running ls -d /var/db/pkg/poppler* shows


Checking the Makefiles and running "make showconfig" provided no useful help.

Strange when a port, poppler-gtk, does not show in ports tree.

So where do I go from here?
