Thanks very much.
I eventually solved the problems by the following a rather labourious
sequence. with a significant number of manual interventions in the
process of upgrading python ports. I now suspect the problems were
primarily due to some conflicts in the python ports.
Here is what worked:
# portupgrade -f *py*
# portupgrade -fr *kde*
# portupgrade -fr *xorg*
