I think this is your error right here. I have had it before. They 
updated perl recently and you may not have a consistent set of p5-\* 
ports with respect to the new perl. Did you run "perl-after-upgrade -f" 
after you updated perl?

FWIW, rox-filer also no longer exists.

You appear to need www/p5-HTML-Parser but sometimes, the messages can be 
misleading :).

I think you have a different problem. I looked at  libbonobo-2.10.1_3 
and the dependancies are

Port:   libbonobo-2.10.1_3
Path:   /usr/ports/devel/libbonobo
Info:   A component and compound document system for GNOME2
Maint:  gnome at
Index:  devel
B-deps: ORBit2-2.12.5_2 bison-1.75_2,1 expat-2.0.0_1 gettext-0.14.5_2 
glib-2.8.6_1 gmake-3.80_2 intltool-0.34.2 libIDL-0.8.6_2 
libiconv-1.9.2_2 libxml2-2.6.23_1 m4-1.4.4 p5-XML-Parser-2.34_2 
perl-5.8.8 pkgconfig-0.20 popt-1.7_1

R-deps: ORBit2-2.12.5_2 gettext-0.14.5_2 glib-2.8.6_1 libIDL-0.8.6_2 
libiconv-1.9.2_2 libxml2-2.6.23_1 perl-5.8.8 pkgconfig-0.20 popt-1.7_1

The problem is that the current version is p5-HTML-Parser-3.50. I think 
your problem might go away if you add the HTML-Parser. That doesn't fix 
libbonobo but you may be able to continue updating your system.
