::Do not worry; hope is not lost. Running portupgrade(1) will

::damage to your ports tree, unless you have done 
::something exceptionally creative. Simply download the 
::gnome_upgrade.sh script and

::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.

Thanks Mark - but I did run the gnome-upgrade.sh script provided off
their site.  It left a temp log file, which got erased when I rebooted.
I'm wondering if I should try and run it again, and keep all the debug
info this time?  Maybe that would help me debug this problem...

Has anyone else had this sort of...weird...glitch?
