I'm trying to use portupgrade to bring Firefox up to current ( 
from I'm getting the msg "firefox-,1: bind installed with 
PORT_REPLACES_BASE_BIND causes build problems."

This machine is running as a DNS Server, so bind94 is installed and necessary.

How can I get around this error? I've tried to google for a solution, but 
all I can find are a few references to the problem, but no actual solution.
