Oh, here, I actually did not de-register anything.
I first run pkgdb -F. It fixed something and I answer no to "unregister
Then, after reading /usr/ports/UPDATING
AFFECTS: users of p5-Compress-Zlib, p5-IO-Compress-*
AUTHOR: mm at FreeBSD.org
The p5-Compress-Zlib, p5-IO-Compress-Base, p5-IO-Compress-Zlib and
p5-IO-Compress-Bzip2 ports have been replaced by p5-IO-Compress.
Users of Perl 5.10 and higher do not need to install this module
because it is already included in the standard perl distribution.
I manually checked any dependencies of the cited ports (p5-...) and
de-installed the cited ports that were actually installed here and not
required by any other port. Later pkgdb did not make complaints anymore.
Is this procedure probably... wrong ? :-)
As of my opinion unregister means "discarding information" but the ports
are still installed and probably not used anymore. BUt just my opinion...
