Thanks Beech 

I do not understand how to reach such a conclusion but yr help is most appreciated. I tried something which seemed to satisgy pkgdb but will no doubt have negative repercussions later -- I chose krb5-1.5.1_1 as the new dependency -- and had a a report Fixws!  No doubt it was the wrongchoice but I now have portupgrade working.. unless I hear anything from you to the contrary when this run  is done I will follow your instructions and trust it all works out in the end..

ps where in alaska are you? I spend quite a few years in the South East
