I found the same thing when installing Gnuplot (FreeBSD 9.3); I quickly 
cancelled it, as I was already close to my download limit...

In the meantime, I just have to clean up whatever broke in the ports area 
when going from 8.2 to 9.3 (I could've sworn I'd followed the instructions 
for the new ports system).
