While updating my installed ports via portsnap/portupgrade I receive 
this error since yesterday's portsnap fetch while building xterm-206:

--->  Uninstalling the old version

pkg_delete: package 'xterm-206' is required by these other packages
and may not be deinstalled (but I'll delete it anyway):

This seems to be a mistake, isn't it?
