No, I was referring to the fact that I ran portupgrade on automake14 and 
it complains and says that it is deprecated and strongly encourages using 
automake19 instead.  I was curious if I just deleted the automake14 port 
and installed automake19 if I would be wreaking havoc on my dependencies 
in other ports.
