I usually only see this error with ports we've written in-house. Usually it happens because the dependency check on a specific file is bad. The check fails, which causes the port to believe it needs to install the dependency, but the package registry gets upset because the package is already installed and it doesn't think it needs to be reinstalled. If these are real ports, you might want to report the brokenness. You'll probably find that you can FORCE_PKG_REGISTER=1 and leave it at that (though I typically treat it as a last resort and instead opt for fixing the port). -- Chris Cowart Network Technical Lead Network & Infrastructure Services, RSSP-IT UC Berkeley
