I understand what you mean, but it is a bit difficult to
describe, since I don't have an idea myself. What I see is
something like this:
After a
# portupgrade -r pkgconfig
I receive

** The following packages were not installed or upgraded
(*:skipped / !:failed)
 ! accessibility/gnopernicus (gnopernicus-0.7.5) (uninstall
        ! x11-toolkits/gal2 (gal2-2.1.5)        (uninstall error)

        * net/gnomeicu2 (gnomeicu2-0.99_1)
        * x11/gnomeapplets2 (gnomeapplets2-2.5.6)

and so on ...

the uninstall errors can mostly be fixed manually by
# make deinstall && make reinstall
since a complete ../work directory has been built but hasn't been
installed because of an existing version.
After this manual procedure most skipped ports will build and
install well.
I also tried a
# pkgdb -fu
in case something is wrong with my package database, but that
doesn't help either.
