Most of the ports you list below are ones where both versions can
co-exist, and where you sometimes actually need both versions.
(For example, some programs require glib 1.x while others need glib
2.x. It is perfectly alright to have both installed at the same time.)
In most cases you should just leave them alone, it is not a problem
to have both versions installed.
The one exception to this is mozilla, where I don't think you can have
both versions installed. (I guess you have installed both www/mozilla
