Thank you for working on this.

It's not clear to me how people that currently have the old 
print/ghostscript should switch to the new version.

'portmaster -o print/ghostscript9-x11 ghostscript9-9.06_10' (in my case) 
or even just 'portmaster ghostscript9-9.06_10' turns into an endless 

===>>> print/ghostscript9-x11 >> print/ghostscript9-x11 >> ghostscript9-9.06_10 (2/2)

 	===>>> The print/ghostscript9 port moved to print/ghostscript9-x11
 	===>>> Reason: Split into print/ghostscript9-base and print/ghostscript9-x11

That will continue to recurse, adding one more print/ghostscript9-x11 
each time.  UPDATING should show the correct method.  Maybe just
'pkg delete -f ghostscript9-9.06_10' and then install
