Still no traceback for ports conflicts during "pkg upgrade"

I am getting several ports conflicts when doing a "pkg upgrade". The most
obvious example is lang/gcc vs lang/gcc46:
pkg: WARNING: locally installed gcc-4.6.4 conflicts on
with:  - gcc46-4.6.4_1,1

As I had requested previously, "There needs to be an -x (exclude) flag or
better yet a traceback method for pkg upgrade" so that one can trace the
port causing the issue.  lang/gcc46 is not the only port causing such

I admit that one of the possible causes could be that I marcusmerge the
gnome3 ports. However, this does not make my request any less sensible,
since there will probably be many other development branches in the future.
