Never use the global force option -f with upgrade, but instead:

  sudo port -n upgrade --force $port

The local --force was specifically added to only force the upgrade, but
do not apply force to any other phase. In case of variant mismatches,
the global 'port -f' will continue although the state in the work/
directory is inconsistent. In case of activation conflicts, the global
'port -f' will blindly overwrite existing files.
