I think my problem was believing that portupgrade was smarter than it
actually is... it's certainly way smarter than me though :-)

Looks like my mistake was not completely purging the old qt2/kde2 before I
started upgrading things.  I'll blow away the Frankenstein's Monster
install I have now and try again from a clean start.

I'd still love to know if that extra +CONTENTS file is good for anything
