	This sounds like the files are present, but the port is not
registered in /var/db/pkg/pkgdb.db.
	If this is the case, to get everything pristine you'll need to:

	a) install firefox-1.5, i.e.:
		cd /usr/ports/firefox15 && make install 
	b) remove firefox-1.5:
		make deinstall
	c) remove firefox-2.0:
		cd /usr/ports/firefox15 && make deinstall 
	d) install firefox-2.0:
		make install

	Afterwards I'd also do "pkgdb -F" just to make sure all the
dependencies are hooked up.
