hi buttmanizer.
i had that problem 2 or 3 weeks ago.
i know thats too annoying :p and it really made me sick for days :)
but eventually fixed it.
all u have to do is just upgrade dependencies before installing any port.
to upgrade dependencies u have to first install portupgrade which is in
/usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade ... (dont forget to select BD.)
if u do this, then upgrade dependencies for the package u wanna install
using the command below:
let's say u wanna install gconf2.
then first :
# portinstall -FR gconf2
if u done with this then move to the second command which is :
# portinstall -N gconf2
(before doing this go to the gconf folder under ports and do # make
deinstall clean first.)
this is what you need friend :p
tell us what u get when u run the commands above.
