You could try pkg_deleting p5* then rerunning portmanager.  That would
go after just the p5* ports that are dependencies.

 If that doesn't work then you'll have to track down the actual problem. The 
error you posted in one of your messages "I get mime_decode-1 FAILED errors 
in the amavis logs" is the place to start, that error means nothing to me but 
maybe you could forward it to the spamassasin author/maintainer?
