I'm trying to upgrade spamassassin, but portupgrade is stubling on every
dependant port. It appears it wants to re-install each port, which of
course doesn't work. It generates the make deinstall first error
message. portupgrade -m -DFORCE_PKG_REGISTER seems to have gotten around
the problem, but I'm curious as to what's causing this. Anyone have any

This is 4.11-RELEASE if that matters...
