OK, portupgrade(1) _is_ looking for 1.2.5_8 but it is trying to get it
where the version of png is 1.2.5_2, so how to resolve the conflict?
Seems to me that portupgrade(1) needs to be getting the packages from
packages-4-stable/All instead?

Will that change where portupgrade(1) tries to get the packages from?
