Yes!  The portupgrade config file, /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf is your
friend in this case.

The ALT_PKGDEP section is what you want - set something like this (NOT

    'net/openldap21-client' => 'net/openldap21-sasl-client',

This simply tells portupgrade and friends that for any package that depends
on openldap21-client, make it now depend instead on openldap21-sasl-client.
