In the above post, a FreeBSD GNOME team member recommends "rebuilding and reinstalling sysutils/polkit, sysutils/policykit, and sysutils/consolekit".

Q: How do I "rebuild and reinstall" these applications when they were installed originally via "pkg_add -r gnome2"?

A: "pkg_add -r polkit" [fails with the message "already installed"]

Thank you,
