A portupgrade question

Hi, I've got a question about portupgrade and something that's happened with
it a couple of times now. The last 2 times libgda has been upgraded, I've run
portupgrade -a to upgrade a bunch of ports, including libgda.
The libgda upgrade has caused a re-install of mysql-client-4, but when
portupgrade has tried to install mysql-client, it's failed because
mysql-client is already installed.
The workaround for this is simple enough, delete mysql-client and then run
portupgrade again, but I'm wondering why this situation occurs - portupgrade
should see that mysql-client is already installed and not try to install it
again (or if it needs upgrading, it should deinstall the old version and
build & install the new version).
/etc/ports/UPDATING doesn't seem to help, there's no mention of either port in
Perhaps my ports db is screwed up?
