Use portdowngrade to downgrade both ports back to versions which worked 
then re-install them.  Once that's done it's safe to cvsup the ports 
again as long as you don't delete them.  Once this problem is fixed you 
can upgrade the ports.  See a thread on the same topic from about two 
minutes ago :-)

This has nothing to do with UPDATING, by the way.  Yes that tells you 
what order to do the upgrade but doesn't tell you what to do when the 
upgrade fails.
