sysutils/eiciel - can't portupgrade but dependencies to gnome2-power-tools

Upon upgrading my ports I ran into a problem: When portupgrade comes
to upgrading sysutils/eiciel it stops with the following message:

===>  eiciel-0.9.8 is marked as broken: does not compile.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/sysutils/eiciel.

However eiciel is needed by gnome2-power-tools.

# pkg_info -Rx eiciel | more
Information for eiciel-

Required by:

So how can I do a portupgrade for gnome2-power-tools when a port that
it depends on can't be upgraded?

Thanks much in advance for any hint!


PS: System im question is freebsd 7.3, AMD64
