From /usr/ports/UPDATING:

    Portupgrade users:
        # pkgdb -Ff
        # portupgrade -f -o textproc/rarian textproc/scrollkeeper
        # portupgrade -a

Seems like a PEBKAC.

From http://code.google.com/p/rarian/ :
"Rarian (formerly Spoon) is a documentation meta-data library, designed
as a replacement for Scrollkeeper."

Not a portupgrade issue.
