I ran a

      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 devel/liboil
      without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
      in your environment or the "make install" command line.

Why doesn't portupgrade just uninstall and upgrade 'liboil'?

I manually went into devel/liboil and ran:
  make deinstall install

Is there a portupgrade flag I am missing? And I don't want my pkg_info to end up with both versions:
 liboil-0.3.12
 liboil-0.3.14

Thanks,
Rudy

Either the port that requires the one that won't install has defined a dependency in a wrong way (this normally happens when something changes in the port depended upon) or your package database is broken, e.g. due to a crash during port registration or shortly after.
