This past weekend, I CVSup'd the ports tree and prepared to run 
portupgrade.  I noticed a large number of GNOME ports in my output from 
pkg_version and, found that I would need to run the GNOME Project 's 
upgrade script to upgrade to 2.12.

I use a dial-up modem had been timed out on several occasions.during the 
process  This happened about three times during the night and I had to 
restart the upgrade each time.  Note that I failed to use the restart 
flag recommended during the first restart.  I finally ended up with a 
"succesful upgrade..." message even though I now have only 188 ports 
after beginning with 297.  Amongst the missing is gnome 2.12 itself.

I'm hoping there is some way to get things back to normal and rerun the 
upgrade without re-installing the missing ports.  BTW, I did back up 

Any advice would be appreciated.  I run 5.4 -RELEASE #0.  I'm running 
this message from a second machine but should be able to supply the logs 
if needed.
