No, you can pkg_delete portupgrade pkg_delete 'ruby*' cd /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade make install You can see options in the commit message at http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/lang/ruby18/Makefile The pkg_delete of ruby* and portupgrade was the only thing that worked for me. There is a now ruby16 and a ruby18. Portupgrade now uses ruby18.
