Here's an example.

msoul...@kanga:...xtproc/p5-XML-RSS$ sudo make deinstall
===>  Deinstalling for textproc/p5-XML-RSS
===>   Deinstalling p5-XML-RSS-1.37
pkg_delete: unable to completely remove directory
pkg_delete: couldn't entirely delete package (perhaps the packing list is
incorrectly specified?)
msoul...@kanga:...xtproc/p5-XML-RSS$ sudo make install distclean
===>   p5-XML-RSS-1.43 depends on file:
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9/mach/XML/Parser/Expat.pm - not found
===>    Verifying install for
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9/mach/XML/Parser/Expat.pm in
===>  Installing for p5-XML-Parser-2.36
===>   p5-XML-Parser-2.36 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/perl5.8.9 - found
===>   p5-XML-Parser-2.36 depends on shared library: expat.6 - found
===>   Generating temporary packing list
===>  Checking if textproc/p5-XML-Parser already installed
===>   p5-XML-Parser-2.36 is already installed
      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 textproc/p5-XML-Parser
      without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
      in your environment or the "make install" command line.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/textproc/p5-XML-Parser.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/textproc/p5-XML-RSS.

So now what?
