It was there, but something could have been wrong?  I cd'd to
/usr/ports/devel/libnotify and ran
make install clean, and it told me that it was already installed and
that I should run make deinstall & reintstall again.  After I did
that, now gnome-mount gets updated and only Libreoffice bombs out:

===>>> Port directory: /usr/ports/editors/libreoffice

	===>>> This port is marked BROKEN
	===>>> build is too fragile and break too often -- try libreoffice-legacy

	===>>> If you are sure you can build it, remove the

===>>> Aborting update

Looking up mirrors... 5 mirrors found.
Fetching snapshot tag from done.
Latest snapshot on server matches what we already have.
No updates needed.
Ports tree is already up to date.
	===>>> New version available: libreoffice-3.4.2_1
===>>> 669 total installed ports
	===>>> 1 has a new version available

This one might be worked on, so I think it will be better to wait for
the problems to be worked on and then reinstall, unless someone has
successfully updated to latest version and advices to proceed.

Thanks for helping.
