I am not sure what you mean by using +IGNOREME here.  Unless you have
a good reason to use lang/gcc44, you should replace lang/gcc44 with
lang/gcc45, and rebuild or otherwise obtain newer versions of the
packages that formerly used lang/gcc44 at runtime, so that the newer
packages use the libraries from lang/gcc45 at runtime.  The
bookkeeping in the portupgrade database and in /var/db/pkg, and the
updating tool(s) that you choose to use, are relatively minor details.
 If you choose to use portupgrade to do this, you should probably do
something like:

portupgrade -o lang/gcc45 lang/gcc44
portupgrade -rfx lang/gcc45 lang/gcc45

(although it has been a while since I used portupgrade). You may want
to first try the steps with an added -n.
