I'm having trouble upgrading my 5.4-STABLE box.  /usr/ports/UPDATING

  AFFECTS users of emulation/linux_base-*
  AUTHOR: netchild at
  We now use Fedora Core 4 as the linux base port, and the
  xorg libs for the linux X11 libs port.
  To upgrade you have to run
        portupgrade -f -o emulators/linux_base-fc4 linux_base\*
        portupgrade -f -o x11/linux-xorg-libs linux-XFree86-libs

The first command works but the second does not:

=> xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm doesn't seem to exist in
=> Attempting to fetch from
fetch: No
such file or directory
=> Attempting to fetch from
File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
=> Couldn't fetch it - please try to retrieve this
=> port manually into /usr/ports/distfiles/rpm/i386/fedora/4 and try
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/x11/linux-xorg-libs.
** Command failed [exit code 1]: /usr/bin/script -qa

This file (xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm) cannot be found
manually.  Any ideas?

$ pkg_info | grep linux_base
