Yeah, I missed the note on this one, too.  Not the change note, but
I don't recall seeing the instructions on what to do about it.
Tried deinstalling portupgrade and reinstalling?  The catch-22,
of course, is that you can't "cd /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade"
in order to `make deinstall`.  However, this might work (and I believe
it's the kludge I used to get around the issue):

$ rm -rf /var/db/pkg/portupgrade*
$ cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portupgrade
$ make install clean
