A portupgrade done today stopped with an error during the upgrade of
gstreamer-plugins-v4l2-0.10.23,3 with the following error:

------------------------------ < Cut here > ------------------------------

** Fix the problem and try again.
------------------------------ < Cut here > ------------------------------

The problem is that the upgrade depends on webcamd which as per the
error message requires FreeBSD 8.0.

I'm running FreeBSD 7.3 with system and kernel as per April 9, 2010.

Has anybody else experienced a problem like this?

Any cure against this?

Thanks much in advance for you help!
