6.0 stable: linuxpluginwrapper port build failure

Thanks a lot for the direction.  All goes well until portupgrade asks me 
to run 'pkgdb -F',
which asks me to resolve stale dependencies.  I have a large number of 
ports installed and
the dependencies seem somewhat intractable for manual resolution.  Is 
this the only way
to resolve the stale dependencies or am I as usual missing something :-( 
?  From the pkgdb
manpage I could not understand the implication of the score and how that 
helps me
select a new dependency...
