Evolution problems...

Hope someone can help...

I finally upgraded firefox, and in the course of this, libnotify.so.1
seems to have been deleted, which is required by "evolution".

So I tried deinstalling evolution, and then reinstalling:

===>   Generating temporary packing list
===>  Checking if graphics/gtk-update-icon-cache already installed
===>   gtk-update-icon-cache-2.24.6 is already installed
      You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
      by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
      If you really wish to overwrite the old port of graphics/gtk-update-icon-cache
      without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
      in your environment or the "make install" command line.

make deinstall:
===>  Deinstalling for mail/evolution
===>   evolution not installed, skipping


portmaster is not helpful. Any clues would be most welcome.

Thanks so much.
