You can tell the portupgrade devs that detecting an installed package has 
dependants, asking the user to uninstall it and subsequently calling a command 
that b0rks out because the installed package has dependants, is not very user 

To correct it, pkg_delete -f libxfce4mcs-4.4.3, make -C /usr/ports/ports-
mgmt/portmaster install.
portmaster /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/xfce4
