portmaster -r libnotify-0 problems

I've been trying to update libnotify and libproxy following the
instructions in UPDATING, which is to do

portmaster -r libnotify-0

This trys to install ghostscript9, and fails. Apparently ghostscript9
conflicts with ghostscript8-8.71_6, which presumably is the reason for
the failure.

Could someone help me resolve this? The obvious solution of pkg_delete
ghostscript8-8.71_6 doesn't work, because too many installed ports
depend on ghostscript8-8.71_6.

Thanks in advance,
