I had also troubles upgrading gnome using the script. With me the 
/var/tmp files where saved (Why? dunno). It showed me what ports whacked 
the installation (wait 8 hours to see them, then wait another 8 to 
recompile everything again).

I updated the offending ports manually with portupgrade, and deinstalled 
kopete which gave headache (2 times).

After that, the install went smooth, took about 24 hours to run all the 
updates, manual portupgrade's remove the offending one, and startup 
gnome again.
