Somebody know what is going on here?  I can't figure it out and
never seen this before.

Neither do i but that won't stop me from speculating ...

# pkgdb -Fu
--->  Updating the pkgdb
--->  Checking the package registry database
Stale dependency: b2evolution-0.9.2 -> marked ():
marked: Not in due form: <name>-<version>

Here, "marked" seems like some sort of place holder for the missing
dependency port.  The otherwise non empty "()" contain the port
directory, under ${PORTSDIR:-/usr/ports}, of the dependency port.

Install stale dependency? ([y]es/[n]o/[a]ll) [yes] a
can't convert nil into String

When you answered "all", pkgdb prepared to install the port "marked"
but  could not parse that name in <name>-<version> format, so the
result was empty string or 'nil' in Ruby, the programming language
of choice for portupgrade tools.

okay thanks for the explanation - so what is the most optimal way of fixing this without breaking things.
