>> Oops! I ran portupgrade(1)! What do I do?

Do not worry; hope is not lost. Running portupgrade(1) will cause the
build to fail,
but it will not cause any lasting damage to your ports tree, unless you
have done 
something exceptionally creative. Simply download the gnome_upgrade.sh
script and 
run it, and pretend that you ran it in the first place. Nobody needs to
know that 
you didn't read the directions first!

The upgrade failed; what do I do?

Unfortunately, this is not only possible, it's highly probable. There
are many possible
valid GNOME configurations, and even more invalid starting points. If
the script fails,
follow the instructions in the error message to let the FreeBSD GNOME
team know about 
the failure.

The majority of build failures will be dependency-related issues. One
simple way to resolve
the problem is to remove the offending port, re-run gnome_upgrade.sh,
and then reinstall the
port when the upgrade process is complete.
