After the portupgrade, did you do a
# cd /usr/ports
# make index
# pkgdb-u

-(I don't like pkgdb -uU which is supposed to do the same, but gives
diff results..)-

After that I would begin with a "portupgrade -rR portupgrade"
-(the base of all things.. ;-)-

You probably will loose the next error msgs..

And because mozilla depends on a lot of things other than itself I would
recomment a "portupgrade -rR mozilla" if you have mozilla already
installed. That way you can be sure that *all dependancies* are met.
Take some time off during compile.. ;)
If mozilla is not installed yet a "portinstall mozilla" handles it all.
